A masked teenager who carried out two "sickening" knife attacks on young men during a mass water fight at Hyde Parklast summer has been jailed for 14 years.
Violence broke out on one of the hottest days of the summer when thousands of people gathered on the banks of the Serpentine with music and alcohol.
Joshua Clements, then 18, donned a scary camouflage mask and armed himself with a nine-inch hunting knife before setting out with his friends to rob party-goers.
Prosecutor Linda Strudwick said: "On that evening Joshua Clements and a group of associates attended an unscheduled and unlicensed music event in Hyde Park.
"A large crowd of mainly young people had gathered in Hyde Park. Most were simply young people intent on enjoying themselves, but others were out to cause mischief and disturbance.
