Age of King’s Cross Tube victim revealed
A MAN who died under a train at King’s Cross Tube station last night was a 63-year-old from central London, police have revealed.
Detectives are still working to inform next of kin of the man, who they suspect was pushed under the westbound Piccadilly line train at 6.30pm last night, but they believe they now know his identity.
British Transport Police (BTP) have launched a murder investigation, and a 34-year-old woman from the Cricklewood area is currently being questioned by police.
Detective Superintendent Ashley Croft, from BTP, said: “Early indications from witnesses are that the victim and the suspect knew each other.
“Following the incident a man on the platform detained the woman by restraining her until police arrived.
“The woman remains in custody and is being held on suspicion of murder.
“We are also in the process of viewing CCTV from the station and interviewing several witnesses who came forward last night.
