Two 17-year-old girls have pleaded guilty to assaulting a shop worker and then smashing through the window of Holland and Barrett in Croydon.

Viral footage of the incident, which took place on July 23, showed the girls punching a 40-year-old employee in the head before they kicked through store's entrance.

Members of the public who witnessed the assault intervened, opening the door of the shop from the outside, allowing the girls to escape into the crowd of onlookers.

The teenagers were arrested later on suspicion of GBH, and one on suspicion of criminal damage.

The case was heard in Wimbledon Magistrates on Thursday September 19. They will be sentence at a future date.
