The suspect being sought for stabbing of a man on train in Surrey has been arrested, British Transport Police say.

A 51-year-old man died after suffering multiple knife wounds during a “vicious fight” on board a Guildford to London train on Friday afternoon.

He was killed in front of his 14-year-old son.

The victim and the attacker had both boarded the train at London Road station in Guildford at about 13:00 GMT.

Police believe the pair were not known to each other.

Assistant Chief Constable Sean O’Callaghan told BBC Breakfast: “I can confirm this morning that we have arrested who we believe to be the suspect in relation to this violent offence and also another person involved as well.

“Those arrests have taken place in an address in the Surrey area this morning.”
