Two boys have been charged with the murder of a teenager stabbed in the neck in south-east London.

Yemurai Kanyangarara, 16, was attacked seconds after getting off a 96 bus in Upper Wickham Lane in Welling on Friday.

The youths, aged 15 and 14, will appear at Camberwell Youth Court on Thursday.

Yemurai, who went to St Columba's Catholic Boys' School, Bexleyheath, had moved to Leicester to avoid violence.

He had just finished his GCSEs and came to the UK from Zimbabwe as a toddler.

He had been living with his father in Leicester, after concerns over violence in the capital, and had come to London only to sit his exams, his friends said.

He was with a friend at the time of the attack.

Yemurai was the eighth teenager to be murdered in the capital since January.
