A 15-year-old boy has been charged with murder, following the fatal stabbing of a 17-year-old in west London.

Ayub Hassan, from Shepherd's Bush, was found with stab injuries to the chest in West Kensington on Thursday afternoon.

The teenager had ambitions of becoming a barrister, with a family friend calling him a "kind and handsome" boy.



A 15-year-old charged with his murder was to appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Saturday morning.

Scotland Yard said three other males were arrested as part of the police investigation.

A 17-year-old has been bailed pending further inquiries to a date in mid-April.

An 18-year-old and a 15-year-old have been released with no further action.
