A 15-year-old boy has been charged with the murder of a teenager who was stabbed to death in the street.

Kodjo Yenga, 16, died from a single stab wound to the heart after being attacked in Hammersmith Grove, west London, in March.

The 15-year-old will appear at West London Youth Court on Wednesday accused of murder and violent disorder.

He had previously appeared in court accused of intimidating a murder witness and was remanded in custody.

In total, eight teenagers have been charged with the murder of Kodjo.

Four aged between 13 and 16 have appeared at West London Magistrates' Court charged with the schoolboy's murder.

They are due to appear at the Old Bailey on Thursday.

Three 14-year-olds appeared at West London Youth Court also accused of the murder of the youngster from Portland Road, west London.
