A man died after being stabbed on a busy London Underground platform yesterday.

The 27-year-old man from Hornsey, north London, was with his brother on the northbound Piccadilly Line platform at Finsbury Park Underground station when a man approached from behind, a Scotland Yard spokesman said.

'The man didn't speak but stood so close that they began to move away,' a spokesman said.

'At this point he put his hand in front of the victim and stabbed him in the face with a knife. The attack appears motiveless.'

The victim, who has not been named by police, died in hospital.

A man was last night being questioned by police.
