Metropolitan Police have confirmed that two women have been charged with assault in Leyton.

A spokesperson said: Melesha O’Garro, 34, was charged with two counts of ABH at Knotts Green Road, E10 on Saturday, 22 October.

"Sherelle Smith, 28, was charged with one count of ABH at Knotts Green Road, E10 on Saturday, 22 October.

"Both will appear in custody at Thames Magistrates’ Court on Monday, 24 October.

"The two women were charged after police were called at 05:08hrs on Saturday, 22 October to Knotts Green Mews, E10 following reports of a fight at the location.

"Two women, both aged 27, were taken to hospital. They have since been discharged."

TV star Lady Leshurr appears to be visible in video footage of the incident obtained by The Sun wearing a white sports bra and a baseball cap as she was put in handcuffs and taken to a police van by two metropolitan police officers.

A witness told the publication: "Lady Leshurr’s friend tried to pull her away to go back into the house after an argument.

"One of the girls she’d been arguing with was in a car, and Lady Leshurr jumped into the car and tried to get her out."

The witnesses also alleged that the woman in the car asked neighbours to call the police, and a second woman was also in the vehicle.

She continued: "I saw her and I thought ‘is this really the person you hear on the radio?"

“The noise of the scuffle woke me up – you could hear the commotion kicking off. It was very loud. I’m happy the police came when they did because it could’ve been worse.”

Daily Star has contacted Lady Leshurr's representatives.

The TV personality starred on Dancing on Ice back in 2021 when she reached the semi-final of the show alongside skating partner Brendyn Hatfield.
