Twelve people have been arrested in connection with a police investigation into disorder at a bus station.

Officers were repeatedly called to Edmonton Green Bus station earlier this month after hundreds of schoolchildren gathered.

On Wednesday January 12, around 200 students were in attendance and a brawl reportedly broke out at around 4pm.

People were said to be armed with bleach and knives but the Metropolitan Police denied that anyone had been stabbed and said at the time no arrests had been made.

Further trouble occurred at the same bus station in the following two days with local police teams taking to social media to slam the "unacceptable" behaviour of the kids.

Ponders End Police indicated a large number of police resources were sent to the bus station on January 14 to deal with "large disorder caused by schoolchildren" while the Enfield Highway safer neighbourhood team said it dealt with issues for three days in a row describing the pupils involved as "rowdy" and causing "mass disruption".

In response to the trouble, the Met says it launched Operation Argo.

Working with local partner agencies, including schools, officers warned students they can expect to see a greater number of police officers in key locations such as transport hubs at the start and end of the school day.

A Section 35 dispersal order was in place on Friday January 21 in areas across Enfield and Haringey.

Investigations into what has already happened remain ongoing. The Met says 12 people have now been arrested for public order offences and a "dedicated" investigation team continues to review CCTV, body worn video from police officers, and social media to identify further suspects.

Anyone who has information or footage relating to the disorder of Friday, 14 January should call police on 101 or Tweet @MetCC quoting ‘Operation Argo’.
