Detective Chief Inspector Sam Blackburn said: "This was a senseless killing at an extremely busy time of the day, and my thoughts are with Louis's family at this painfully difficult time.

"The incident was over within a matter of 40 seconds, but I know many other passengers or members of the public would have seen what happened. If you have not already spoken with police, please get in touch."

According to the Croydon Guardian, Louis was supposed to take a taxi home on the day he was stabbed, but changed his mind and got a train instead.
