A number of suspects are believed to have chased two boys inside the court after an argument outside.

Two youths, thought to be aged about 15, were taken to hospital, treated and discharged before being arrested.

A female police officer was also treated at the scene after being punched but has now returned to duty, the Metropolitan Police said.
