Mohamedally, from Radcliffe Way, Southall, was taken by ambulance from the White Hart roundabout underpass to Ealing hospital but was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.

Detective Superintendent Sue Hill of Scotland Yard said: "This was a despicable attack on a frail old man by cowardly individuals. They assaulted him and left him for dead, and we are treating the incident as a racially-motivated murder."

The unnamed teenage boy who is to appear at Ealing magistrates court on Monday is from  Northolt. The second 16-year-old boy who was questioned by detectives was released on bail to return to a west London police station later this month pending further enquiries, Scotland Yard said.
