Queen’s Park schoolboy, 14, appears in court accused of drug dealing

A 14-year-old schoolboy from Queen’s Park has appeared in court accused of drug dealing in Pimlico.

The youth, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was arrested last week after officers stormed the Churchill Gardens estate following a five-month operation targeting suspected drug dealers.

The boy appeared at Hammersmith Youth Court accused of supplying class A drugs between January 7 and April 15 this year.

He was remanded in custody to appear at Southwark Crown on June 12.

He is one of 17 people who appeared in court charged with drug offences following the operation.
