A teenager has been scarred for life after being ambushed and slashed across the face.
The 17-year-old was waiting at a bus stop in Ladbroke Grove, near the junction with Chesterton Road, when a group of men jumped from a dark-coloured vehicle and attacked him with a sharp object.
The brutal assault left him requiring extensive hospital treatment and permanent scarring on his face.
Police were called by London Ambulance Service at around 00.30am on January 4 to reports of a boy slashed.
