Man cleared of Boxing Day Foot Locker murder

A man has been cleared of stabbing a teenager to death in London's Oxford Street during the Boxing Day sales last year.

Seydou Diarrassouba, 18, of Mitcham, south-west London, died on 26 December in the Foot Locker sports shop, near Bond Street Tube station.

The court was told Jermaine Joseph, of Tottenham, north London, acted in self defence when chased by Mr Diarrassouba.

The 23-year-old was cleared of murder and manslaughter.
