London riots: Boy of 11 sentenced for stealing a bin

An 11-year-old boy has been given an 18-month youth rehabilitation order for stealing a bin during the recent riots.

The child, from Romford in east London, is the youngest rioter in London to face prosecution, according to police.

He committed the offence just five days after being given a referral order for arson and criminal damage over an unrelated incident.

Luisa Baldini reports from Havering Youth Court.
