Teenager remanded over stabbing

A teenager charged with the murder of a 16-year-old on a busy high street in South East London has been remanded in custody.

Yemurai Kanyangarara was stabbed in the neck seconds after getting off a 96 bus in Welling on July 1.

He was attacked outside the Superdrug store in Upper Wickham Lane, and taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Woolwich, where he died.

Two other boys - one aged 15 and the other 14 - have already been charged with murder and appeared at Camberwell Youth Court on Thursday the 7th.

They were all ordered to appear at the Old Bailey on Monday the 11th, a Scotland Yard spokesman said.

Yemurai came to the UK from Zimbabwe as a toddler and was living in nearby Belvedere.

He was a pupil at St Columba's Catholic Boys' School in Bexleyheath and had recently finished his GCSEs.

His father Kelton left a message on his Facebook page that read: "My boy is gone it is so painful - my heart is bleeding. RIP my boy I will always love you."
