Rapper Dizzee Rascal has been charged with assault after a woman was injured in Streatham, south London.

The grime artist, whose real name is Dylan Mills, is due to appear at Croydon Magistrates’ Court on Friday 3 September.

Police were called to a residential address on 8 June and found a woman with minor injuries.

She did not require hospital treatment.

Mills, 36, from Sevenoaks, Kent, is regarded as being one of the pioneers of grime music.

His debut album Boy In Da Corner, released when he was just 18, won him the Mercury Prize in 2003.

He has also had a string of number one singles including Bonkers, Holiday and Dance Wiv Me.

Mills was awarded an MBE in 2020 for his services to music.
