BART trains were temporarily stopped in Oakland this morning because of an unauthorized person on the tracks between the 12th Street Oakland City Center and West Oakland stations, a BART dispatcher said.

The person was reported on the tracks at about 11:10 a.m. between the two stations and has prompted trains to stop in both the San Francisco and East Bay directions, the dispatcher said.

The person was removed from the tracks at about 12:15 p.m.
