Manslaughter plea in London riots death case

The prosecution in the case of the death of a pensioner during the London riots has accepted a guilty plea of manslaughter by a 17-year-old boy.

Darrell Desuze, of Bath Road, Hounslow, pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of Richard Mannington Bowes on Monday.

Gary Dolby from the CPS said he hoped the family of Mr Bowes could take some comfort from the conviction, and that the case "sums up the futility of last summer's riots".
