London Mayor Johnson 'constantly in touch' after riots

London Mayor Boris Johnson is "constantly in touch" with his team about rioting in north London, despite being on holiday, his deputy has said.

Kit Malthouse told the BBC modern communications meant Mr Johnson was "all over this issue".

Labour's Lord Prescott said it was "unbelievable" the mayor had not cut short his break.

A second night of looting and disorder in parts of London followed riots in Tottenham on Saturday night.
