Two people have been arrested on suspicion of murder following the fatal stabbing of a man at Hillingdon Tube station in London.

A 21 year-old from Uxbridge and a 19-year-old from Wembley were both held in central London today. A woman, 18, was also arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

Aspiring athlete Tashan Daniel, 20, was killed on September 24 after being stabbed on a train at Hillingdon Tube station while making his way to watch Arsenal play.

Detective Chief Inspector Sam Blackburn said: “We have been working around the clock to trace those responsible for Tashan’s death and this is a positive step in the ongoing investigation.

“I’d like to thank Tashan’s family for their patience and strength and once again extend our deepest condolences to them. They are continuing to be supported by specially trained family liaison officers.  

“I know the local community and many people across the country have been truly shocked by this senseless and unprovoked killing, and we will continue to work tirelessly to make sure those responsible face justice.”
