A 17-year-old boy has been charged with the murder of an 18-year-old who was stabbed to death in Sydenham at the weekend.

James Hunter, nicknamed Yardz, was found with a stab wound to the chest and pronounced dead in Wells Park Road on Saturday (May 31) night.

Police were called to the scene at around 8.30pm to reports of a fight between a group of youths.

The 17-year-old boy will appear in custody at Bromley Youth Court today (June 5) charged with his murder and wounding with intent.

A 15-year-old boy and a 17-year-old boy previously arrested have been released with no further action.

Meanwhile a 13-year-old boy and 15-year-old boy have been bailed pending further investigation and are due back later this month.
