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

The attack happened just after 19:30 BST on Monday at the station where 30 people were injured in a terror attack last month.

A 20-year-old man died in the stabbing, which is not being treated as terror-related.

The two injured people were taken to hospital and one was subsequently arrested.

The dead man's next of kin have been informed although formal identification has yet to take place.

He was pronounced dead at the scene at 20:30.

Parsons Green Lane and the station were closed by police and cordons put in place. The station has since been re-opened.
