A third teenager has been charged after a 15-year-old boy was assaulted in Raphael Park, Romford.

Detectives have been investigating the incident, which happened on July 21, after a video showing a boy being attacked in woodland went viral.

A 17-year-old boy from Romford was charged with GBH yesterday and bailed to appear at Barkingside Youth Court on November 2.

Last week two 17-year-old boys, also from Romford, were charged with GBH and bailed to appear at Barkingside Youth Court on October 19.

A fundraising page set up in response to the viral video has raised almost £4,000, which will go to an anti-bullying charity.
