Looter describes moment he stole a stereo during riots

A man involved in the summer riots of 2011 has told BBC Radio 5 live's Victoria Derbyshire why he stole a stereo worth £150.

Reece Davis-James, 19, was arrested and sentenced to 14 months in prison.

He was released 11 months early at the end of April for good behaviour and said he regretted what he had done.
