Children and teenagers at a youth centre have joined in on the latest internet video craze by recording their own version of the 'Harlem Shake' dance.

The phenomenon has swept video websites, with people all over the world uploading clips of themselves moving to the electro-pop tune.

Youngsters at the Soul Project charity's base in Wood Street, Walthamstow, have now made their own take of the viral craze and uploaded it to youtube.com.

The short videos typically feature a single person dancing alone at first, followed by them being joined by many more people halfway through.

It is estimated that more than 103 million people have watched Harlem Shake videos since the craze began earlier this month.

The song in the video, by Canadian producer Baauer, has gone to the top of the charts in the USA in the wake of the clip's popularity.
