A teenager has appeared in court charged with the murder of schoolboy Kevin Ssali.

Kevin, 14, of Whitworth Road, South Norwood, had been missing from home since July.

He was stabbed shortly after he got off a bus in Burnt Ash Road, Lee, on Saturday evening.

A post-mortem examination gave the cause of death as a single stab wound to the heart.

A 17-year-old boy from New Cross who has been charged with Kevin's murder, appeared at Bromley Youth Court this morning.

He was remanded in custody to appear at The Old Bailey on September 20.
