Three men were stabbed in a rush hour street fight outside a north-west London tube station.

One victim was taken to hospital after reports of young people running from the scene with a machete at 5.20pm on Wednesday.

Two of the males, who suffered non-life-threatening injuries, have been arrested at the scene on suspicion of assault.

One local told Harrow Online: “I saw loads of teenagers running around in Harrow bus station with a machete.”

One witness said: “We saw emergency services covering an area outside Costa Coffee with foil.

“We couldn’t see how many but I’ve heard it was three people. We saw a stretcher being rushed to the incident area. The whole of the station was cordoned off and so was the Harrow bus garage.

“It’s very scary. My office is just across the road - this has become a regular occurrence now.”
