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.
