A judge at the Old Bailey has apologised to the family of Tashaûn Aird, after sentencing of the three teenagers found guilty of killing him was delayed today because the probation service has still not completed a report into one of them who is said to be a victim of “modern slavery”.

One of the boys accused of the murder of 15-year-old Tashaûn Aird denies being at the scene - despite his two co-defendants insisting he was there.

One of the youths accused of murdering Tashaûn Aird has denied orchestrating the fatal attack, claiming he was only at the scene because he wanted to make a move on a girl.

A 15-year old boy on trial for stabbing Tashaun Aird to death was allegedly caught at school with a seven-inch Rambo knife in his trousers just months before the fatal attack, the Old Bailey has heard.

A teenager has described the terrible moment he realised his pal had been stabbed, as he lay on the floor drenched in blood himself and looked in the distance to see the 15-year-old’s lifeless body.

Six men and teenagers - including a 19-year-old from Romford - were arrested yesterday on suspicion of violent disorder and the murder of a man in Hackney.

For the past six months, employers and employees have been adapting to ways of working from home. The green light has now been given to many people to go back to offices safely. From flexible hours and staggered starting times to deep cleaning, we’re getting ready for new ways of working.

School’s in for summer – and beyond – with health experts agreeing that pupils safely returning to their studies is “positively” the right thing to do. It’s vital for all children’s welfare, not just in terms of students’ future education but also mental and physical well-being, as well as social interaction of classmates.

The NHS Test and Trace system provides protection for family, friends, colleagues and the community, and is here to keep all of us safe and allow us to enjoy summer safely. We take a look at how the system is working and talk to one member of the thousands of team members about her experiences.
