London Violence: Arrests Have Been Made

Theresa May says that those responsible for violence will be made to face the consequences of their actions


Police are continuing to respond to criminal activity across London, following riots in Tottenham on Saturday.


More than 100 people have been arrested after looting and violence broke out in a number of boroughs of north, east and south London overnight. 



No excuses for violence

Speaking this morning, Home Secretary Theresa May said: 'Last night, police officers again put themselves in harm's way to protect Londoners and their property.


'Those responsible for the violence and looting will be made to face the consequences of their actions. Many have been arrested and further arrests will be made.


'Londoners have made clear that there are no excuses for violence, and I call on all members of local communities to work constructively with the police to help them bring these criminals to justice.'
