“Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything.”

Youth charged with Kiyan murder PDF Print E-mail

A 16-year-old boy has been charged with the murder of schoolboy Kiyan Prince.

Kiyan, a youth team footballer with Queens Park Rangers, was stabbed outside the London Academy school in Edgware, north London, on Thursday.

A post-mortem examination gave the cause of the 15-year-old's death as a single stab wound to the chest.

Scotland Yard said the 16-year-old, who was arrested on Saturday, would appear in custody at Brent Magistrates' Court on Monday.

Terrific prospect

Kiyan's death prompted a flood of floral and other tributes outside the main gates of the school.

London Academy principal Phil Hearne said Kiyan had had as much potential as Theo Walcott, the teenage star recently been called up to England's World Cup squad.

Kiyan, who lived with his mother and 18-year-old sister, was dubbed "one for the future" by bosses at QPR.

The west London club's head of youth Joe Gallen described Kiyan as a "great lad and a terrific prospect".

His death came a week before the launch of a Home Office national knife amnesty, and follows Scotland Yard's Operation Blunt initiative, which began last December in an effort to reduce knife crime in London.

The London Academy replaced Edgware School in September 2004, and has since received a glowing Ofsted report for delivering "exceptional" results.
