A 14-year-old boy from Islington will appear in court this morning charged with the attempted murder of another boy, also 14, in Upper Holloway.

Police were called to Fairbridge Road at 6.50pm on Sunday and found the victim with numerous stab wounds.

He was airlifted to hospital with serious injuries.

An 11-year-old boy was initially arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, but was then “de-arrested” with no further action to be taken.

Two other boys, the 14-year-old now charged and a 15-year-old, were then arrested yesterday morning. The 15-year-old has been bailed pending further enquiries.
