A man has been arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm after a suspected “serious assault” in west London that left the male victim fighting for his life.

An ambulance took the victim, a man in his 50s, to hospital on Saturday morning having sustained his wounds in the Hanworth area of Feltham.

On Monday, the force said he remains in hospital in a critical condition having sustained the injuries at an address in Basden Grove, Hanworth.

The Metropolitan Police are investigating and on Sunday they arrested a man, aged in his 40s, on suspicion of GBH. He remains in custody at a west London police station.

The resident said there were “police and forensics everywhere” on Saxon Avenue.

A spokesperson for the Met said: "He remains in hospital in a critical condition. His family have been informed. Detectives from West Area CID are investigating.

“There has been no arrest at this early stage. Anyone with information that may assist police can call 101 and quote CAD 1641/30mar.”

Another man was also left in critical condition after an incident in Lewisham, south-east London.

Emergency services were called to Lewis Grove just past 8pm on Saturday, to reports of someone being injured.

The Met said its officers believe the victim may have been “clipped” by a bus.

He is now in hospital in critical condition.

But the force is still investigating the exact circumstances under which the man came to be hurt.
