Man bailed over Bournemouth 'riot mobile message'

A man from the Poole area arrested on suspicion of trying to incite a riot in Bournemouth has been released on bail.

The 23-year-old was held amid reports that messages were forwarded on a mobile device about planned disorder in the town, Dorset Police said.

He was released on Tuesday evening to a date in early September, police said.

One inspector, three sergeants and 21 police constables from Dorset Police were sent to Gloucester following an outbreak of disorder on Tuesday night.

They were originally sent to the Bristol following a mutual aid request from Avon and Somerset Police but were diverted to Gloucester when police officers came under attack from youths throwing rocks and bottles in the city centre.

Gloucestershire Police said gangs targeted shop windows from about 23:00 BST on Tuesday. Ten males from Gloucester were arrested.

A Dorset Police spokesman said the force had put contingency plans into action, including extra patrols across the county.

There was no incidents of disorder in Dorset on Tuesday night, police confirmed.
