London Underground: Man dies at East Finchley station as emergency services rush to scene
A man has sadly died at East Finchley London Underground station. London Ambulance Service were called at 9.18am this morning (Monday, May 2) to reports of an incident at the Tube station. They sent a number of resources including London’s air ambulance, but despite their best efforts, a man was pronounced dead at the scene.
East Finchley Tube station is on the High Barnet branch of the Northern line, between Highgate and Finchley Central stations. Disruption was being reported on the service earlier today, but this seems to have now cleared.
One social media user reported this morning, “East Finchley station is closed and there’s no Southbound service due to a casualty on the tracks.” Another described a “massive police and rescue presence” at the scene outside the station station.
