Police have arrested two 15-year-old boys on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm following an unprovoked attack on a schoolboy.

The twowere arrested in Epping on Tuesday in connection with the assault on Nathan Inness Harrero on January 15 in Albany Court, Epping, at around 7pm.

The 15-year-old Davenant Foundation School pupil was head-butted and kicked in the face, leaving him with a fractured eye socket.

Nathan underwent emergency surgery at Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow the following day to save the sight in his right eye.

His suspected attackers have been bailed until April 19 pending further investigations.

Anyone with further information can contact police.
