A murder investigation has been launched following a stabbing on board a train at Horsley station in Surrey, British Transport Police have said.

A police spokesman said they were called to Horsley station at 1.15pm after a report that a man had been stabbed on board the 12.58pm train service travelling between Guildford and London Waterloo. The victim died at the scene.

DS Gary Richardson said: “This was a shocking and violent attack which took place onboard a train in broad daylight.

“We know that this was an incredibly frightening incident for passengers travelling on the train.

“We believe that the suspect and victim boarded the train at London Road at 1.01pm and we would encourage anyone who was on this train to come forward regardless of whether or not they think they can help our investigation. We believe the suspect departed the train at Clandon station.”

A BTP spokesman added that a number of officers were in the Clandon area, attempting to identify and trace the man responsible for the attack, but no arrests had been made.

Rail services have been suspended between Guildford and Effingham Junction. South Western Railway said it was because police were dealing with an incident there.
