A gang of dozens of youths terrorised motorists and attacked a bus and police car as they drove through Wembley, north-west London yesterday.
Police have arrested two suspects and were forced to issue a dispersal order as a large group of teenagers were seen gathering on Engineer’s Way, just outside Wembley Stadium.
Shocking videos have flooded social media showing teenagers causing chaos as they ran onto the road at around 7.10pm, blocking traffic and kicking cars as they tried to drive away.
One of the clips shows hooded youngsters gathering around a double decker bus before kicking and climbing onto the back of it, clinging on as it moved away.
In other footage, boys were even seen hurling objects at a police van as it drove away, before one clambered onto the back of it while it was moving as another ran alongside.
Crowds were seen gathering around as a group of young people kicked an Ocado van and took turns to jump on multiple cars which were driving down the busy road.
Teenagers, some of whom were hooded and masked, were seen filming the chaotic scenes.
Munni Trivedi, who claimed to have witnessed the incident, said: ‘We were watching from the other side. Could not believe it.
‘The pictures don’t truly reflect the reality of how awful it was. The boys were so lucky they didn’t get hurt and I really hope there was no damage to any cars. Not big. Not clever. Very sad.’
Two males were arrested on suspicion of violent disorder and assault on police, the Met Police said.
There were no reports of any serious injuries following the incident, which was said to last over an hour.
Police said they were called at approximately 7.10pm on Saturday to reports of a number of youths engaging in disorder and damaging vehicles.
A section 35 dispersal order was put in place and officers dispersed the group.
The Met said they are still making enquiries into the circumstances surrounding the disorder.
