Crown Prosecution Service prosecutor Emma Jones said: 'This devastating and shocking incident at the Tate Modern on 4 August of this year changed the lives of Bravery's young victim and his family forever. 

'The boy was singled out by Bravery who threw him from the viewing platform intending to kill him.

'That he survived the five storey fall was extraordinary.

'Eye witness accounts and CCTV footage, along with Bravery's admissions at the time of the arrest that his actions were pre-planned, meant he had little choice but to accept responsibility for his actions.

'There will be no trial as a result, and the boy's family are spared having to relive this traumatic experience in court.

'This was a terrifying experience for the boy's parents and our thoughts are very much with them all at this difficult time. We hope he makes as full a recovery as possible.'
