A SCHOOLBOY aged 14 has been convicted by an Old Bailey jury of murder in an East London pub.
Harry Farrant was found guilty along with Jason Michael, 39, of Daniel Leahy's murder at the Victoria pub in Barking in April.
The pair were convicted of murder and assault after a three-week trial which ended yesterday.
Restrictions on the schoolboy's identity were lifted by the court because he was joint charged with an adult and because of the serious nature of the killing, Scotland Yard confirmed last night.

Police were called to the pub on April 13 where 45-year-old Daniel Leahy was found stabbed through the chest. A second man aged 49 had a cut to the head in the incident.
Both the schoolboy and Farrant were arrested at their address at Hewetts Quay in Barking two days later and charged with murder.
