Southall Park fairground fight death: Six men arrested

Southall Park The fair took place in Southall Park

Six men have been arrested on suspicion of murder after a man was killed during a fight at a fairground in west London.

Police were called to Southall Park, in Southall, on Monday evening after receiving reports of an altercation.

A man, believed to be in his 20s, was found in a nearby road with head injuries. He was treated by paramedics but died at the scene.

Two other men, who were stabbed in the fight, were taken to hospital.

One aged 25 was stabbed in the armpit and a 32-year-old suffered a wound to his arm.

'Sad day'

Both men were later arrested in connection with the incident, along with four others, and they are being held at west London police stations.

Emily Wilson, from Bob Wilson's Funfairs, said she only realised there had been a fight when she saw a man lying near the park gate.

She said: "It did not happen in the funfair area. The first we knew of anything at all was when, unfortunately, there was a guy lying at the back of the funfair by the gate and he had been stabbed.

"It's a very sad day for everybody. People should be in the park today, enjoying it as they were yesterday.

"It's just horrendous that this has happened."

The company has run the fairground in Southall Park for 40 years.

Police have urged witnesses to come forward.
