A teenager has appeared in court charged with a fatal stabbing outside a Tube station.

Brandon Aldon McNeil, 18, of Lollard Street, Lambeth, is accused of murdering Shane Jerome on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old from Thornton Heath was pronounced dead outside Brixton Tube station at 20:45 BST.

At Bromley Magistrates' Court, Mr McNeil was also charged with attempted murder and possession of an offensive weapon in a private place.

No pleas were heard and he was remanded in custody. He will next appear at the Old Bailey on Tuesday.

The Metropolitan Police said a 17-year-old boy arrested on Thursday has been bailed to return on a date in late August, while a 19-year-old man arrested immediately after the attack has been released with no further action.

The family of Mr Jerome are being supported by specialist officers, the Met said.
