Two teenagers have been arrested in connection with a night of widespread disorder in central London last week.

They are the ninth and 10th people to be arrested over the events in the fast food chain on Tuesday July 19 and both been bailed until a date in September.

Five girls, including one aged 15, three aged 16, and one 17, had already been arrested and also bailed to dates in early and mid September.

Two boys, aged 16 and 17, and an 18-year-old man were also arrested and have been bailed until dates in early and mid September.
