A 16-year-old has been charged with attempted murder after an elderly woman was stabbed while trying to stop her car being stolen from outside her home.

Police were called to the house in New Malden, south-west London, on Thursday.

Police said the victim, aged in her 70s, was taken to a south London hospital where she remains in a serious, but stable condition.

The teenager, also charged with aggravated burglary, is due to appear before Kingston magistrates on Monday.
