HARROWING CCTV of the moment 14-year-old Jaden Moodie was knocked off a moped and stabbed to death has been shown in court.
Jaden had been out drug dealing in Leyton, East London, for the Beaumont gang when he was attacked by rivals on the evening of January 8, the Old Bailey has heard.

CCTV footage showed Jaden being rammed off his moped
The killing was captured on CCTV cameras on Bickley Road and shows a Mercedes car ploughing head-on into Jaden's scooter.
Jaden was then stabbed to death as he lay in the road before the Mercedes drove off.
Ayoub Majdouline, 19, was allegedly one of five young men in the Mercedes who had driven around the area looking for a rival gang member to attack.
The day before, Majdouline was caught on CCTV at a Travelodge hotel in Walthamstow, East London, wearing distinctive Nike Air Max trainers he allegedly wore during the knife attack on Jaden, the court has heard.
The prosecution says Majdouline was also wearing yellow rubber gloves, one of which was later found to have traces of the victim's blood and the defendant's DNA.
DRUG DEALER DENIES MURDER
Giving evidence, Majdouline told jurors how he sold drugs "for and with" the Mali Boys gang, including county lines in Basingstoke, Ipswich and Andover.
He said: "At the time, I did not feel like I was being supported by social services and I never lived by myself before.
"I was not getting really any money from social services - £50 a week - and I did not really know how to spend money ... Just two or three days I would run out of money and I did not have money to buy food.
"Everyone in Leyton that I knew was selling drugs to make money so I just thought ... to survive."
When he turned 18, Majdouline said he got "confused" sorting out jobseekers' allowance.
After a few weeks of volunteer work, he returned to drug dealing, saying: "I felt I had to make money the only way I knew how to make money."
In a series of agreed facts read to the court, jurors learned that Jaden had been in trouble with police since he was 13-years-old.
He was handed a youth conditional caution in March last year after police seized an air powered pistol, Rambo knife and cannabis during an altercation in Nottingham.
In November last year, he admitted appearing in a Snapchat video with an imitation firearm.
The previous month, Jaden was found with crack cocaine at an address in Bournemouth, jurors were told.
Majdouline, from Wembley, north London, denies Jaden's murder and the Old Bailey trial continues.
