A man is in critical condition after a possible attack following a Queens Park Rangers football match.

Police discovered the 52-year-old near Davenport Road in west London after the QPR match against Luton Town at 9.50pm on Friday.

The man, who is from Luton, was rushed to hospital and remains in a life-threatening condition with a serious head injury.

Officers, who believe he may have been assaulted following the Championship match, have appealed for witnesses to come forward with information.

Metropolitan Police Detective Constable Arrash Faghihi said the incident happened in an "extremely busy" area and urged any witnesses or anyone with mobile phone footage which may be relevant to contact the force.

He said: "This man sustained a serious head injury, and it is vital that we make contact with witnesses quickly.

"The area was extremely busy after the match and there will undoubtedly be many people with information that will assist police.

"I need them to get in touch as detectives work to build a complete picture of what happened on Friday night."

No arrests have been made. Anyone with information and any witnesses should call 101, ref 7888/19nov, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
