Tuesday, July 3, 2018

A boy, 14, has been charged with attempted murder over the stabbing of another 14-year-old boy in a busy north London street.

The youngster, who is from Islington but cannot be named because of his age, will appear in court on Tuesday morning.

A 15-year-old boy who was also arrested in connection with the attempted killing has been bailed pending further inquiries, Scotland Yard said.

The alleged victim was left in a serious but stable condition after suffering a number of stab wounds during an incident on Fairbridge Road, Islington on Sunday.

An 11-year-old boy who was initially arrested on suspicion of attempted murder was later de-arrested, released from custody and faces no further action.
