A man has been stabbed during rush hour at the Stratford International Docklands Light Railway station.

The victim, whose injuries are not thought to be life-threatening, was attacked shortly before 9am on Wednesday.

British Transport Police said officers were called to reports of a serious assault and that a cordon had been put in place while an investigation took place.

No arrests have been made.

A London Ambulance Service spokesman said an ambulance crew, cycle responder and incident response officer were sent to the scene, where the man’s injuries were assessed but he was not taken to hospital.

The station is near Stratford Westfield shopping centre and is part of a busy transport hub.

News of the attack comes amid heightened concern over violent crime in the capital, with Scotland Yard investigating more than 50 murders so far this year.
