Three teenagers held in connection with Tuesday's unrest on the streets of Walthamstow, have been bailed until next month.

Over 200 youths brought the centre of Walthamstow to a standstill at around 5pm as fights broke out between McDonald's in Hoe Street and at the top of the High Street.

Hundreds of police attended, including the Territorial Support Group (TSG) who assisted police by lining the streets to prevent the violence spreading.

Videos quickly emerged online showing big groups of girls fighting, with some brandishing baseball bats.

The hashtag #WalthamstowRiots began trending on Twitter soon after the incident, but police downplayed the incident as "small scuffles".

The entire area was closed off until 9pm.

Police attended the same area on Monday to reports of a large disturbance involving some one hundreds youths inside McDonald's.

There were no reported injuries following Tuesday's unrest but three teenagers were arrested.

A 16-year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl arrested on suspicion of affray have been bailed to a date in November alongside an 18-year-old man suspected of violent disorder.

Police have said no tasers were discharged, but one was deployed on the 18-year-old arrested and now bailed.

In an update to residents yesterday, Walthamstow MP Stella Creasy, said: "It is now confirmed the source of yesterday’s disorder was an altercation between two young women, from two different local colleges."

Leaders of both Sir George Monoux College in Walthamstow and Leyton Sixth Form College are fully co-operating with police to identify any students involved.
