Man dies in triple stabbing outside Parsons Green Tube station

Parsons Green-2

LONDON: A man has died and two others have been injured in a stabbing outside Parsons Green Tube station.

Police were called at 7.37pm on Monday to reports of an incident outside the Underground station, where 30 people were injured in a terror attack last month.

One man died at the scene and two others have been taken to hospital, London Ambulance Service (LAS) said.

The stabbing is not terror-related and no arrests have been made, Scotland Yard said.

An LAS spokeswoman said it received a call at 7.38pm to an incident near the station.

She said: “We sent two ambulance crews, a first responder in a car and an incident response officer to the scene. A team from London’s Air Ambulance was also dispatched to the scene by car.

“We treated three patients at the scene. We have taken two patients to hospital as a priority. Sadly one patient died at the scene.”

Parsons Green Lane and the station have been closed by police and cordons are in place.

One witness said he believed the triple stabbing occurred during “a fight”.

A woman could be heard crying after people, who appeared to know the victim, were ushered inside the police cordon.
