“Officers from the Met and British Transport Police (BTP) attended the scene. London Ambulance Service was also in attendance.

“Three men were arrested by BTP.

“A 52-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of GBH and has been bailed pending further enquiries to a date in late June.

“Two other men were arrested for affray. They remain in custody at a north London police station pending further enquires.

“One man, aged 51, sustained a head injury and was taken to a north London hospital for treatment. He has been discharged.
