Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a man was found injured following Friday night’s QPR vs Luton Town match.
The appeal relates to an incident that happened around 21:50hrs on Friday, 19 November on Uxbridge Road in West London.
Officers on duty following the Championship match came across a man suffering a serious head injury.
The 52-year-old man, who is from the Luton area, was taken to hospital by London Ambulance Service. He remains in a life-threatening condition and his family has been informed.

Police have confirmed that so far, there has been no arrest made, and that their enquiries will continue.
Detective Constable Arrash Faghihi said, “This man sustained a serious head injury, and it is vital that we make contact with witnesses quickly.
“The area was extremely busy after the match and there will undoubtedly be many people with information that will assist police. I need them to get in touch as detectives work to build a complete picture of what happened on Friday night.”
