A gang of youths terrorised motorists and targeted a bus and police car in north-west London yesterday.

Two suspects were arrested and police issued a dispersal order after the large group of teenagers gathered on Engineer’s Way near Wembley Stadium.

Shocking videos posted on social media show the teens causing chaos as they blocked traffic, kicked cars, and climbed on buses.

Further clips show them targeting a police van as it drover away, with one individual climbing on to the back of it while another youth ran alongside.
