A Metropolitan spokesman said: “At this early stage it appears he was assaulted by a group of men armed with a bat.”
There have been no arrests so far.

It comes as another man was fighting for life after being savagely beaten by a gang of youths trying to steal his moped.

While a 23-year-old who was stabbed to death during a vicious knife fight became the 50th murder victim in the capital since the
start of the year.
