A man charged with attempting to murder two police officers has been remanded in custody after swearing at the judge.

District Judge Margot Coleman ordered John Paul Onyenaychi, 30, of Wise Road in east London, back to the cells after his outburst.

A police officer remains in a serious but stable condition and a PCSO was also hurt during Wednesday's incident.

Mr Onyenaychi is also charged with attempting to cause grievous bodily harm against a second PCSO.

Pc Paul Madden, 23, and Piotr Dolata, 27, a police community support officer (PCSO) were stabbed at a bus stop in New Broadway in Ealing, west London.

PCSO Steven Constable was also hurt.

Det Ch Supt Andy Rowell, the Metropolitan Police's borough commander for Ealing, said he wanted to "commend the two injured officers for their bravery and actions at the scene, as well as the other officers that were in attendance and members of public who went to help them".

"Both officers are highly regarded and it truly does show the close relationship the officers have in the borough, as well as the public support of the work that we do," he added.

Mr Onyenaychi is due before the Old Bailey on 25 March.
