A toddler has died after suffering a cardiac arrest at London Bridge station.

Passers-by attempted to resuscitate the boy, who is believed to be three-years-old, but he was later pronounced dead.

A London Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: "We were called at just before 9.15pm to reports of child in cardiac arrest at London Bridge train station. The first of our medics arrived within three minutes of the call coming into our control room.

"CPR was already being carried out by a passer-by on arrival. Medics made every effort to resuscitate the patient both at the scene and on the way to hospital. He was taken as a priority to St Thomas's."

A spokesman for British Transport Police said: "We were called to London Bridge station shortly after 9pm on Wednesday 15 October to reports of a child having collapsed.

"The child was taken to hospital, where they died.

"The incident is not being treated as suspicious. A file will be prepared for the coroner."
