Also appearing with the three Haringey teenagers on June 1 are a 17-year-old student of Palmers Green who has been charged with violent disorder; a 17-year-old student from Stoke Newington charged with burglary and violent disorder and a 17-year-old student from Chingford, who has been charged with two counts of burglary and violent disorder.
