A local pizza delivery rider was pushed off his scooter and robbed of his keys and pizza by a group of youths having a snowball fight, police have revealed.
He was attempting to make a delivery in the snow to an estate in Hoxton on 3 December when the gang turned on him.
On nearing Felton Street, he came across six or seven young men having a snowball fight and due to the ice on the roads was unable to drive around them.
The gang surrounded the rider, pushed him off his bike and made off with his insulated bag of pizza and the bike keys, escaping along Felton Road and into the Colville Estate.
Police have described the men as black males of approximately 20 years of age.
