A 17-year-old boy, who allegedly delivered the fatal wound, is on trial accused of murder along with 18-year-old Chibuzo Ukonu, of Loughton, Essex.

Members of Spence’s family broke down in tears and left court as prosecutor Julian Evans outlined the case.

Evans told jurors the attack which lasted a matter of seconds was caught on CCTV footage.

He said: “From the CCTV footage alone, there can be no doubt that on the evening of February 21 Glendon Spence was chased into the youth centre and there is no doubt that he was attacked there, that he was stabbed and as a result of those stab injuries he died.

“He was the victim of a swift and merciless attack.”

He told jurors the alleged killers arrived at the Brixton centre at about 6.45pm wearing dark clothes and carrying large knives.

Both teenagers had been dropped off by a BMW Series 5 car which had been bought with £1,150 by Ukonu just days before, the court heard.

Evans said: “Glendon Spence and his friends ran inside the youth centre seeking safety.

“Glendon ran into the main room and headed towards the far end. As he ran, he lost his footing and fell to the ground. He managed to get up but he fell over again near to the corner of the main room close to a table tennis table.”

“As Glendon lay on the floor beneath him, (the 17-year-old) attacked him with his knife, raising his hand in the air and aiming a number of downward stabbing blows at his prone body.”

Spence suffered defensive cuts to the arm and hand as well as the fatal stab wound to the right thigh which caused “sudden and immediate blood loss”, Mr Evans said.
