Schoolboy in uniform ‘face down on ground’ after being stabbed at Tube station
A schoolboy was seen ‘face down on the ground’ after being stabbed at a Tube station this afternoon.
South Ruislip station is closed and the area cordoned off as police investigate the knifing in north west London.
The boy has been rushed to hospital after the daylight attack.
A concerned parent told MyLondon: “A schoolboy was stabbed, my daughter was there when he fell to the floor.”
A witness said: “I saw a school boy in uniform stabbed in the side and he didn’t look in a good way.
“He was face down on the pavement and was shaking. Think he was in shock.”
An Air Ambulance has been spotted landing near the station.
The London Ambulance Service say a person has been rushed to a Major Trauma Centre as a priority after being called to a stabbing at 4.23pm.
A spokesman for British Transport Police said: "At 4.24pm today (26 February) British Transport Police were called to South Ruislip Underground station following reports of a disturbance.
"Officers attended the scene, alongside colleagues from the London Ambulance Service, and a young man was taken to hospital with what is believed to be a stab wound to his abdomen. His injuries are not thought to be life threatening."
In a tweet to a stranded customer, Chiltern Railways have confirmed there will be “no services calling at South Ruislip this evening until further notice.”
The station is served by the Central Line, whose twitter account wrote: "South Ruislip station is closed to Central Line and Chiltern Railways services while the Police carry out investigations. Trains will not be stopping there."
The closure of the station and the disruption may affect football fans intending to travel to the Queen’s Park Rangers game this evening.
