Youths bailed after Dagenham charity hit for third time

Four youths were held on suspicion of criminal damage in connection with vandalism at a Dagenham recycling charity.

The boys aged between 11 and 14 were arrested after a window was smashed at the Osborne Partnership in Osborne Square, at around 8.20pm on December 21.

The Post reported two weeks ago that the award-winning charity, which gives employment to 60 people with learning disabilities, was left with a �700 repair bill after its windows were damaged on December 12 and the weekend of December 10 and 11.

A Met police spokesman said the youths had been bailed to January 31 and February 1.
