One man has died and another man is in hospital after separate incidents on the Piccadilly Line at Finsbury Park and Wood Green Tube stations.

The fatality at Finsbury Park station happened at 8.09am on Sunday, while another man was airlifted to the Royal London Hospital, Whitechapel, on Saturday afternoon after being struck by a train at Wood Green.

British Transport Police (BTP) said the incident at Finsbury Park is not being treated as suspicious.

A BTP spokesman said: “BTP officers attended alongside paramedics from the London Ambulance Service, but the man, believed to be 27-years-old and from Edmonton, was pronounced dead at the scene.”

The line was reopened at 9am, but delays continued throughout the day.

Emergency services had been called to Wood Green Tube station less than 24 hours before, where another man was found underneath the first carriage on the eastbound platform.

The man - who is believed to have jumped in front on the train at about 4.30pm - was trapped by his right arm, they said.

The London Ambulance Service, London Air Ambulance and two engines from Tottenham Fire Station all attended the scene.
