A woman described by police as one of “Redbridge’s most wanted” has handed herself in, police say.

Halima Ahmed, 26, was wanted on a recall to prison in relation to a false imprisonment charge.

She is being questioned today.

Her face, along with 19 others, appeared in Thursday’s Ilford Recorder and on our website.

Two others also handed themselves in to police.

Craig Barrett, 23, of Knighton Road, Forest Gate, appeared at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Thursday for failing to appear after being charged with theft from a vehicle. He will reappear on February 28.

Steven Harris handed himself in to police at Ilford. The Crown Prosecution Service will take no further action.

Police still want to speak to 12 men and five women over a range of alleged offences.
