A GRAPHIC cartoonist and anti-war campaigner died under a train at Finchley Road underground station.

Leon Kuhn, 59, who lived in Goldhurst Terrace, Swiss Cottage, attended hundreds of protest marches throughout his life.

His work was regularly published in the Morning Star and the New Statesman.

One of the Kilburn Miners Support Group during the 1984-85 protests, he was a member of the Socialist Workers Party and the media and entertainment trade union BECTU.

His death – under a Jubilee line train around 12.45pm on Thursday – is not being treated as suspicious.
