A 14-year-old boy has been charged with attempted murder after another boy, also 14, was stabbed in Ladywell [Ladywell Youth Club, Dressington Avenue].

The boy is thought to have been attacked as he left a youth club. Youth workers who were nearby gave him first aid before paramedics arrived. He was taken to hospital where he was in a critical but stable condition. Police said the youth workers may have saved his life.

The teenage suspect will appear at Bromley youth court on Thursday morning, according to police. Two other boys, aged 14 and 15, were arrested but later released on bail pending further inquiries.
