A boy was left on the side of a road to die in a savage attack outside of his school.
The student bled to death in the "senseless knife attack" yesterday afternoon outside Kelmscott School in Walthamstow, east London.
Reports state three "older kids" were the perpetuators who then ran into a nearby tyre shop, leaving the injured boy behind.

The victim attempted to run away during the attack, but the three stabbers were "waiting for him" outside of the school.
It is said that other pupils looked on and did not intervene.
Emergency services were called but they could not save the boy, who was in year 11.
He was declared dead on the street at 4.39pm on Friday, May 5.
The attack was shocking to those who witnessed it, but it is the second killing of a 16-year-old boy in the past five years.
The motivation of the attack is not yet known, but the three older kids were not thought to be at the school during the day.
One eye witness said he saw one of the attackers get out of a white Hyundai before the attack.
A local business owner who saw the attack told the Daily Mail: "He was a Year 11 kid. There were three other kids older than him. They were waiting for him.
"They chased him. He ran and when he got to the tyre shop they stabbed him three times in the stomach and he bled to death."
The local community has been left shocked and headteacher Sam Jones released a statement.
"A Kelmscott student was tragically killed in a senseless knife attack," the head teacher said.
"Kelmscott is a large and tight-knit family and this loss will be felt for a long time to come.
"Hold those that you love close this evening. I know we will come together as a community and support one another through this."
Chief Superintendent Simon Crick also released a statement stating he was "totally devastated by the loss of a young man's life."
No arrests have yet been made and road closures remain in place around the scene.
