Two 16-year-olds and a 17-year-old appeared at the Old Bailey charged with the murder of Mr Blackman, also known as “Dotz”.

Blackman, from Kentish Town, was allegedly chased and stabbed in the early hours of February 18 after leaving a nearby party. He was found at around 3.20am in Logan Place, Earls Court, by police officers who had been called to investigate the nearby disturbance. He died at the scene. A post mortem found Mr Blackman died from multiple stab wounds to the chest.

During a short court hearing on Monday, the defendants, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, spoke only to confirm their names. Judge Wendy Joseph QC set a plea and case management hearing for May 21 and a trial from August 13.

All three were remanded into custody.
