Police believe the attack happened after the man got off a bus
A teenager has died in hospital after an attack with a "blunt instrument" in a west London park.

Police found Fuad Buraleh, 19, from Hayes, Middlesex, after they were called to Dean Gardens, West Ealing, in the early hours of the morning.

He was taken to hospital but died 40 minutes later from head injuries. A murder inquiry has been launched.

Dean Gardens and part of Uxbridge Road have been closed while forensic experts examine the area.

Bus dispute

A Metropolitan Police spokesperson said detectives believed the victim had been out socialising in the Ealing area before he was attacked.

He is believed to have been making his way home with a friend when they got into a dispute after getting off a 207 bus on Northfield Avenue, close to where he was found.

The victim was beaten about the head with a blunt instrument.

He was found in the park with serious head injuries by a member of the public and was taken to hospital, where he died less than 40 minutes later.

His friend escaped unharmed.

A post-mortem examination has been taking place at Uxbridge mortuary.
