The boy is suspected of causing criminal damage to a police van in Whitehall, during the November 24 protest. He was arrested on Thursday December 23 and taken to a police station in north west London.

Two other teenage boys, aged 14 and 15, of Kentish Town, were also arrested on the same charges. The three teenagers have been bailed to return to police in May 2011.
