Two teenage boys accused of the murder of 15-year-old Zac Olumegbon were remanded in custody today.

The pair, aged 16 and 17, appeared at Sutton Youth Court where they were ordered to appear at the Old Bailey on Friday for a bail hearing.

They were accused of murdering the aspiring actor outside Park Campus School in West Norwood, south London, last Friday.

The boys are also charged with grievous bodily harm against Zac's 14-year-old friend, who was stabbed in the arm.

Two other teenagers, also aged 16 and 17, have been released on bail until August, pending further inquiries.

An eighth person, a 16-year-old boy, was being questioned at a south London police station.
