Six men, including a teenager who appeared in court in his school uniform, have been charged with public order offences causing £12,000 worth of damage across the city on August 9.

The court heard how a group of youths caused the damage after going on a rampage through the city after congregating at The Point in Milton Keynes. They smashed cars and even a police van as they made there way through Fishermead, Eaglestone and Furzton on their way to Queensway in Bletchley where a number of shops had their windows smashed.

Appearing at Milton Keynes Magistrates Court, Nigel Baiden, 18 of Neath Hill, was charged with violent disorder and robbery. He has been remanded in custody and will appear at Aylesbury Crown Court next Friday for a preliminary hearing.

Tafadzwa Sibanda, aged 20, of St Giles Street, New Bradwell, Pius Ofori, aged 18, of Porthleven Place, Fishermead, Resal Bray, 18 of The Boundary, Oldbrook, and two teenagers aged 15 and 16-years-old were also charged with violent disorder and have been released on conditional bail.

The six men were arrested after early morning raids on Wednesday.
