Police say no arrests have been made and inquiries into the circumstances are underway.

In a separate incident in Hounslow, roads were closed on Friday evening around Whitton Road following a stabbing.

The Met said in a statement: "A 17-year-old male is in hospital with life-threatening injuries.

"Please call 101 quoting CAD 6005/11DEC if you have information."

There are unconfirmed reports the teenager also had "acid" thrown at him during the attack close to Hounslow Station, but police are yet to comment on this.

The Met were reportedly called to the scene at 6.14pm on Friday, and a crime scene remains in place.

No arrests have been made in the Hounslow attack either.
