A man has been stabbed to death on the platform of a London Underground station.
The victim was knifed at around 4pm this afternoon at Hillingdon Station in west London.
Police have launched a murder investigation after the shocking act of violence which took place in front of commuters.
Members of the London Ambulance Service and air ambulance attended the scene and found the man with a serious injury consistent with being stabbed.
He was declared dead at the scene and his family have been informed.
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.
We are doing all we can to find those responsible, and I would urge any witnesses or anyone who was in the area at the time and saw anything suspicious to contact us as soon as possible.
