On May 19, two 16-year-olds and a 17-year-old appeared at West London Youth Court charged with Grievous Bodily Harm with intent.

Another two boys, one aged 16 and the other 17 were subsequently arrested and appeared at West London Magistrates Court on May 20, charged with GBH.

Both were remanded in custody.

A fourth suspect, in his mid-teens, was arrested on May 18 and bailed.

The attack happened in front of horrified crowds in the bus station outside Hammersmith Broadway at 3.50pm.

Several police cars attended and an air ambulance landed on the King Street NCP car park roof with a large area around the scene cordoned off.
