The men, aged 24, 22, and 18, presented themselves to police stations separately on Friday and were arrested on suspicion of a religiously aggravated public order offence. All three remain in custody.

Local activists told BuzzFeed News that two men and one woman had laughing-gas canisters thrown towards them by men in a white van at Tottenham Hale Retail Park on Wednesday evening.
