FOUR teenagers are due in court today (January 7) in connection with a violent scuffle at a bus stop in Orpington High Street.

A PCSO was injured in the incident which happened as Orpington College students waited for a bus outside Boots on November 3 last year.

The route 51 bus was kicked after people were told it was full and they would not be allowed on.

Rita Ebie, of Crofton Park Road, Brockley, is charged with using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour.

The 18-year-old is also charged with obstructing or resisting a constable in the execution of their duty.

Another 18-year-old, Evelyn Nortey, of Picardy Street, Belvedere, will appear on the same charges.

A 17-year-old boy from Abbey Wood and a 17-year-old girl from Dartford, who cannot be named for legal reasons, are also due in court on the same charges.

Police issued fixed penalty notices to an 18-year-old woman from Eltham and a 19-year-old man from Erith for using threatening words or behaviour.

No further action is being taken against a 16-year-old boy.
