A third teenager has appeared in court charged with the murder of a 16-year-old stabbed in the neck in a south London street.

Yemurai Kanyangarara was allegedly attacked just after getting off a bus in Welling on 1 July.

A 15-year-old boy from Peckham, south London, appeared at Camberwell Youth Court earlier.

Two other boys aged 14 and 15 have already appeared at Camberwell Youth Court accused of murder.

All three have been remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey on Monday and are due back at the youth court on 13 July.

The other 15-year-old is from Peckham and the 14-year-old is from Camberwell.

Yemurai, of Belvedere, south-east London, was with a friend when he was stabbed after getting off a 96 bus in Upper Wickham Lane in Welling.

Yemurai, who went to St Columba's Catholic Boys' School, Bexleyheath, had been living with his father in Leicester and had come to the capital to sit his GCSEs, his friends said.
