Cops haven't released an update on his condition and say the knifeman is still on the loose.

A huge cordon is now in place on Cranbrook Road but it isn't clear if he was stabbed inside the station.

Scotland Yard said: "Police were called at around 15:29hrs on Friday, 05 April to reports of a stabbing on Cranbrook Road, Ilford.

"Officers attended alongside the London Ambulance Service and found a man, believed to be in his 20s, suffering stab wounds.

"No arrests have been made."

Buses are now on diversion as police investigate, while the main entrance to the station is currently closed.


The stabbing is the latest violence to grip the capital as the knife crime epidemic continues.

On Wednesday, a man, believed to be in his mid-40s, was killed in a "machete attack" in Harrow, North West London.

And on March 24, newsagent Ravi Katharkamar was stabbed in the chest while opening his Pinner shop, and died 45 minutes later.

There were 44 violent deaths in London by March 26 in 2018 — compared with 33 killings this year.
