  • Major Glass and Glazing

Parents in Hornchurch taking their children to school near Ardeligh Green Road watched in horror as an 18 year old youth was seen carrying what witnesses describe as a ‘machete’.

Police promptly arrested the youth as it is believed he threw the weapon into a garden along Ashlyn Grove just before 9am this morning.

One local lady who was bringing her daughter to school and wished to be remain anonymous, told the Havering Daily: “It was frightening to see, we had children with us and there was this teenager with his college lanyard round his neck carrying a machete!”

A Met spokesperson told the Havering Daily: “Officers stopped an 18-year-old man in Ashlyn Grove, RM11 at 08:58hrs on Monday, 16 November. He was arrested for being in possession of a bladed article and was taken into custody at an east London police station.”
