An attack on three men at West Ham Tube station left one with potentially life-changing injuries to his eye and bite marks that pierced his skin, police said.
A question on travel advice reportedly descended into a brawl onboard an eastbound District line train.
When the doors opened, one of the trio was punched in the face and bitten after he fell backwards onto the train platform, another sustaining a fractured toe.
British Transport Police (BTP) are treating the incident as a “serious assault” and search for four men in connection to the incident.
According to officers, four men approached the victims onboard a Mile End to West Ham service.
