Greenford Tube station death – man dies following fight as violence continues to grip London

The victim, aged in his 30s, died from serious head injuries outside Greenford underground station, North West London, at around 1.45am.

A second man was rushed to hospital with suspected head injuries and he remains in a stable condition.

Cops were scrambled to the train station after receiving reports of a fight when they discovered both men unresponsive.

A Met spokesman said: "Police were called to Oldfield Lane North outside Greenford Station at 01:46hrs on Saturday, 23 June following reports of a fight.

"Officers and London Ambulance Service attended and found two unresponsive men aged in their late thirties.




"The first man was pronounced dead at the scene. A post-mortem examination will be held in due course.

"Formal identification awaits. Police are in the process of informing his next-of-kin.

"The second man has been taken to hospital with a suspected head injury. We await an update on his condition.

"No arrests have been made. Enquiries into the full circumstances of the incident continue."

A cordon is in place while cops investigate and the station was closed this morning but has now re-opened.

Violent crime has continued to sweep the capital this year with the murder rate overtaking New York for the first time ever.

There have been more than 70 killings in London in 2018, with figures released last week revealing knife crime has risen by 22 per cent.

And the shocking stats also showed 2017 was the worst year for fatal stabbings among young people since 2002.
