Ex-Games envoy remanded over riots
Wednesday 17 August 2011
A former youth Olympic ambassador accused of being involved in the riots in London was remanded in custody today.
Chelsea Ives, 18, will appear again at Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court on September 7 when the case will be committed to the crown court.
Ives, of Leytonstone, east London, is a former Waltham Forest Council youth Olympic ambassador.
She has denied two counts of burglary, a charge of violent disorder and another of attacking a police car.
She was reported to police by her mother Adrienne Ives who apparently saw her on TV coverage of the riots.
Her mother has said it was a hard decision but something any good parent would do.
