According to BTP, the man's family have been informed and are being supported by specially trained officers.

The man is the 113th person to be murdered in capital so far this year.

Forensic officers are currently combing the station for evidence and the station remains closed causing some disruption to services.

No arrests have been made.

Officers are trying to establish the exact timeline of events and will examine CCTV footage on board the train and from the station platform in a bid to identify the killer.

Detective Superintendent Gary Richardson of British Transport Police said: 'This was a shocking act of violence which has seen a man tragically lose his life this afternoon.

'While we are at the early stages of our investigation, we believe a group of young men were involved in an altercation on the platform before one of the men received a fatal stab wound.

'We are doing all we can to find those responsible, and I would urge any witnesses or anyone who was in the area at the time and saw anything suspicious to contact us as soon as possible. Please text BTP by texting 61016 or calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 382 of 24/09/19. Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

'This level of violence is not usual on the rail network, and we will be increasing our uniformed patrols in the Hillingdon area in the coming days to help reassure the travelling public.'

Witnesses reported seeing blood and a person performing CPR on the victim as the underground station was evacuated following the attack.

One person, who asked to remain anonymous, said: 'I was on the train with my brother heading for Ruislip. We were about to head for the front carriage but luckily we found some seats, otherwise we may have ended up being witnesses.

'Suddenly they told everyone to leave the station immediately. Most people were still quite scared and hanging on the far side of the platform.
