A man has been found guilty of murder after he stabbed a young man to death at a Kent train station.

Jamie Simmons, 37, of Blackfriars Road in London, dragged 23 year-old Samir Draganovic, from Croydon, down the train platform at Knockholt railway station and killed him to death on November 5, 2017.

CCTV footage from the night shows the pair running off the end of the platform before Mr Simmons returns alone.

Mr Draganovic's body was found with stab wounds by a train driver passing the scene later that night.

Following a public appeal, Simmons handed himself into a police station on November 8. He was then charged with murder.

Simmons was convicted by a jury at Inner London Crown Court today (May 10) after deliberating for less than an hour and a half.

During the trial, Simmons pleaded guilty to manslaughter by diminished responsibility, claiming he could not remember killing Mr Draganovic.

He did not explain to the court or to police why he killed him.

Senior investigating officer, SCI Paul Langley, said: “Simmons tried to claim that he couldn’t remember ever assaulting Draganovic but the court saw through his attempts to avoid justice.

“This was a brutal attack against a young man and appears to have been entirely random. Samir was simply on his way home.

“Simmons is clearly a dangerous individual who should not be out on the streets and so we are pleased he was found guilty today.”

Mr Simmons will be sentenced tomorrow (May 11).
