Further riots in London as violence spreads across England

Violence broke out in four English cities as rioting and disorder spread across London for a third night.

Hundreds of people attacked and looted shops in Birmingham, Bristol, Liverpool and Nottingham in what police called "copycat criminal activity".

It comes as London saw a third night of violence which began in Tottenham on Saturday over the fatal shooting by police of Mark Duggan.
