Two teenage boys, aged 15 and 16, are both charged with murder after fatal stabbings of two 16-year-old boys just a mile apart in south-east London

Two boys aged 15 and 16 have been charged with murdering two other teenagers a mile apart from each other in south east London last weekend. 

Kearne Solanke and Charlie Bartolo, both aged 16, were found with stab wounds in Titmuss Avenue, Thamesmead, and Sewell Road, Abbey Wood, in Greenwich on Saturday afternoon.

Police and paramedics were scrambled at around 5.10pm on Saturday, but despite the efforts of the emergency services, both victims succumbed to their injuries and died. It was later confirmed that the deaths were linked. 

The Metropolitan Police said a 16-year-old boy had been arrested on Tuesday and a 15-year-old boy later in the day.

It comes after teenagers were seen wiping away tears as they left flowers and tributes at the scenes at the weekend.
