Lamborghini’s, Ferrari’s and Bentley’s are being rented by 16-year-olds in Tower Hamlets, to celebrate the end of their school days. Tower Hamlets is home to the largest Bangladeshi community in Britain, and the majority of students taking part are of Bangladeshi origin.
The students paying at least £100 per day for the cars, in area where upwards of one in 10 are out of work.
“It’s showing off, basically. Playing music, going from area to area to area,” said Foyzur Rahman, a student at Swanlea School, who attended the ceremony this year and split a £400 fee with a friend to rent an Audi S4 for four days.
