Youth, the bad?

After reports that some rioters were as young as nine, police called on parents to keep their children at home. Chief Constable Chris Sims of West Midlands police said some were “astonishingly young”.

Paul Tilsley, deputy leader of Birmingham city council, told the BBC that about 200 youths in two groups had been involved. He warned those whose children brought stolen goods home that they were accessories to crime.

In Toxteth, Liverpool, many youth and community centres closed and shops shut early. Police warned late on Tuesday night that there were signs of unrest in Toxteth, on the edge of the city centre, and on the Smithdown Road.
