A teenager is fighting for his life in hospital after being shot outside an east London train station.

Police and paramedics were scrambled to the scene at St James’s Street Overground station, in Walthamstow, at about 10pm on Tuesday.

The victim, believed to be 18, was rushed to hospital where he remained in a critical condition.

The station was closed while officers continued to investigate the shocking incident.

It is understood the victim was gunned down in the St James’s Street before stumbling into the station, Scotland Yard said.

A Met Police spokesman said: “Police were called at approximately 10pm on Tuesday, July 31 to reports of a man suffering gunshot injuries inside St James's Street station.

“Officers and London Ambulance Service attended and the man, believed aged 18, was taken to an east London hospital for treatment - he remains there in a critical condition.”

No arrests have been made. Police remained at the scene this evening.

Somehow that always just made me feel good
I can put a spare bulb in my hand
And light up my yard
