All trains were cancelled at Strawberry Hill train station because of the murder investigation into the death of a 20 year old man.

A team of police officers and investigators could be seen combing a section of the track near the platform looking for clues.

At least 20 police officers were at the scene as well as Network Rail officials.

Police vans were parked near the crossing with police officers from British Transport Police and Community officers guarding the cordoned off track and entrances to the station.

Trains from Teddington and Twickenham were operating as normal.

Local MP Munira Wilson said on X (formerly twitter) “Shocking and sad news to wake up to in our community this morning. My thoughts are with all those impacted. I’m keeping in touch with the police for updates.”

The murder probe is being led by detectives from British Transport Police (BTP) 

Officers were called to the station at 11.53pm on 8 January following reports of an injured man.  

Officers attended alongside colleagues from the Metropolitan Police and London Ambulance Service and a man was found with a serious injury, consistent with being stabbed.

Despite their best efforts, a man in his 20s was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.  The young man has not been named.

Four men have been arrested in connection and remain in police custody this morning.  

Detective Chief Inspector Sam Blackburn said: “This is a senseless act of violence which has seen the tragic death of a young man.

“This investigation remains in the early stages and the station will remain closed while we continue our enquiries. 

“I urge anyone with information that may help us piece together the moments leading up to this to contact BTP by texting 61016 or calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 630 of 08/01/24. Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

The stabbing is the latest in the London area after an increasing wave of knife crime across the region.
