A 16-year-old boy has denied carrying out a spate of moped acid attacks in less than 90 minutes in Shoreditch and Islington.

The teenager allegedly targeted six victims, all men on bikes, spraying them in the face with a noxious liquid.

He is charged with 13 offences in connection with the incident on July 13, all of which he denies.

The defendant, who cannot be named because of his age, spoke only to confirm his details and enter pleas at the Stratford Youth Court hearing on Monday.

He is charged with GBH with intent, possession of a weapon designed to discharge a noxious liquid, two counts of robbery, four counts of attempted robbery and five counts of attempted GBH with intent.

He also faces another charge of robbery of a moped on June 25 in a separate incident in Stratford, which he also denies.

The boy, from Croydon, was remanded in custody to appear at Wood Green Crown Court on August 14.
