Teenagers in London have the Ride of their Lives

Teenagers in London have the Ride of their Lives

Reuters photographer Olivia Harris spent time documenting end of year celebrations among a group of teenagers in east London. In Tower Hamlets, one of the most deprived parts of the city according to government statistics, a trend has arisen which sees many 16-year-olds at local schools spending large sums of money to rent increasingly flashy cars for their National Record of Achievement (NRA) ceremony, an event roughly equivalent to a prom celebration. The teens, who are too young to drive, are chauffeured around the neighbourhood and attend the ceremony at school, often before spending a night on the town.
