Officers have viewed CCTV footage and now wish to speak to the people identified in the images.

“If you witnessed what happened, or have key information which you think could assist officers, I’d urge you to come forward.”

Two males from Islington, aged 17 and 18, were arrested at the scene on suspicion of causing grevious bodily harm and bailed until Monday, 24th January.
