Firearms officers went to the scene after reports of man with a knife on York Way at the junction with Caledonian Street at around 10:50pm.

A police spokesman added: “Firearms officers and British Transport Police attended. A man was found inside King’s Cross Railway Station suffering from knife slash injuries and an arm injury.”

Witnesses told of “a man lying on the platform bleeding heavily”

The spokesman added: “At this early stage, it is believed that the man was assaulted on Pentonville Road, at the junction with Caledonian Road.”
