Boy's bus death in Walthamstow: Teenagers detained

Two teenage bullies have been ordered to be detained for four years for chasing another youngster to his death under the wheels of a bus.

Ezekiel Amosu, 17, was crushed to death after he tripped up as he tried to get away in January 2011, the Old Bailey heard.

Trae Hudson, 17, of Enfield and Cliff Perreira, 16, of Walthamstow, were found guilty of manslaughter.

They had chased Ezekiel with wood and stones from a building site.

Ezekiel, described as a talented and beloved music student, was with friends when he was chased by the youths in Walthamstow.

A young man who had huge potential, who was talented and loved by all, lost his life as a result of your thoughtless and bullying actions.

He was so frightened that he fled into busy traffic.

He clearly must have felt outnumbered and terrified to escape the way he did. One can only hope and pray he knew nothing of his fate and did not suffer.
