The serious assault took place in front of horrified commuters earlier this afternoon. Emergency services swiftly arrived on the scene, with many noticing a police helicopter circling above the underground station. Police have confirmed that the man died of his injuries.

Detective Superintendent Gary Richardson, from British Transport Police, said: “This was a shocking act of violence which has seen a man tragically lose his life this afternoon.

“While we are at the early stages of our investigation, we believe a group of  young men were involved in an altercation on the platform before one of the men received a fatal stab wound.”

The station serves the Metropolitan Line and Piccadilly Line.
