He was pulled from the canal but, despite efforts to save him, he was declared dead at the scene at 6.09pm.

A post-mortem examination on Wednesday concluded he died from stab injuries.

Three boys – aged 14, 15 and 17 – were charged on Saturday with murder and robbery.

They will appear in custody at Highbury Magistrates’ Court on Monday.

Police have renewed appeals for information and witnesses to the killing.
