Suspect in Tate Modern balcony push named

Jonty Bravery

The suspect who has been charged with attempted murder, after a six-year-old-boy was allegedly pushed from the viewing platform of Tate Modern in London in August has been named. As Jonty Bravery has now turned 18, reporting restrictions in the UK have now been lifted. The boy fell from the tenth floor, landing on a roof below. A recent statement from the victim's family on a fundraising page described the extent of the boy's injuries 'Our little boy doesn't know anymore how to speak, to eat or to move his body but he begins to do his best to move his tongue, his right arm and hand. We see his efforts. We believe with all our heart that he will find the way, from his head, to do everything again. He is very brave. He keeps on smiling and reacting to our jokes.'

Bravery will appear before a plea hearing next month.
