A 17-year-old has become the second person accused of murdering a teenager who was fatally stabbed outside a friend's home.

The teenager, from Clerkenwell, is due before Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court on Monday, accused of killing Joshua Folkes, also 17.

Joshua died on Tuesday after the attack in Palmers Green, north London.

A post-mortem examination confirmed the cause of his death as a stab wound to the chest.

Kreshnik Etemi, 18, of Muswell Hill, north London, has been remanded in custody after he appeared at the same court on Saturday charged with Mr Folkes's murder.

A 15-year-old girl arrested in Enfield on Wednesday in connection with the murder has been released on bail pending further inquiries.
