A 20-year-old man was confirmed dead and two others injured, following a stabbing last night at the Parsons Green Station, at 7:30pm (local time).

Scotland Yard confirmed one of the men injured in the attack has died and the next of kin have been informed.

The two injured were taken to central London hospitals for treatment.

Their conditions remain unclear but witnesses reported seeing CPR being given to the victims at the scene.

The incident is not being treated as terror-related.

Parsons Green Tube station has been closed, while emergency services attend to the scene.

“I was on Parsons Green walking my dog when a policeman ran up to us and said to leave the park immediately so that a helicopter could land”, said a witness.

“Sounds of a girl screaming and crying were piercing”, she said.

A spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Police confirmed that “officers are responding to an incident at Parsons Green where a number of males have suffered stab injuries”.

“We sent two ambulance crews, a first responder in a car and an incident response officer to the scene”, said a spokesperson for the London Ambulance Service.

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

This incident comes a month after a bomb partially exploded at the District Line station during the morning rush hour commute into central London.

Despite the failure to completely detonate on 15 September, at least 30 people were injured in the blast.

Police made at least six arrests in connection to the bomb plot, ranging between the ages of 17 to 48.
