A teenager from Ilford has been charged after a car hit four pedestrians outside a busy Islington pub.
Days after the Westminster terror attack, a vehicle crashed into people in Essex Road on Saturday March 25.
An Ilford 17-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is one of four teens charged with aggravated vehicle taking.
Malique Howe, 19, of south east London, another 17-year-old from Highbury, and a 15-year-old were also charged.
All four will appear at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court today.
A fifth teen was arrested in connection with the investigation and has been bailed to return in May.
A police spokesman said the incident was not being treated at terror related.
