The man was stabbed outside East Croydon railway station

A man has been stabbed to death at a busy railway station in south London.

Emergency crews were called to East Croydon railway station just after 16:30 GMT to reports of a stabbing.

The air ambulance was called but the man died at the scene.

Det Supt Gareth Williams from British Transport Police, said the attack – which they are treating as murder – as “deeply shocking” outside “a very busy transport hub”.

He added: “Tragically, a young man has lost his life tonight and I know this will be heartbreaking news for his family.

“We have now launched a murder inquiry and I am urgently appealing for any witnesses to get in touch.”

He added officers believed the attack happened near the back entrance to the station, near Ruskin Square.

“Alongside the Met, throughout the evening, we’ll be increasing our patrols in the East Croydon area and we have authorised additional Section 60 stop and search powers,” he said.
