A man has been charged with wasting police time after reports of a child going missing inside a stolen car in east London.

Jamal Thomas, 23, from Romford, is also charged with perverting the course of justice after the Audi A3 was reported stolen in Beckton around midday on Thursday, the Metropolitan Police said.

Officers launched an “urgent” appeal after the white vehicle was taken from the Beckton Triangle retail park with the infant inside.

But they later said the child had been found in a separate location to the car.

Thomas will appear via video link at Barkingside Magistrates’ Court this afternoon, the force added.
