An 18-year-old man has appeared in court charged with conspiracy to murder over the shooting of black equal rights activist Sasha Johnson.

Ms Johnson, a 27-year-old mother of two, remains in hospital in a critical condition after the attack at a party in Peckham, south London, in the early hours of Sunday.

Cameron Deriggs, of Bromley Hill, Lewisham, was charged on Friday night.

He appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court and was remanded in custody.
