100 Arrested as looters strike Birmingham city centre


London violence spreads across the country

VIOLENT outbursts in London were replicated in Birmingham last night after looters brought havoc to parts of the city.

Police arrested more than 100 people in the Bullring area of the city centre as gangs ransacked high street shops in apparent copycat looting that has marred London for three days.

But the violence wasn’t limited to the city centre with an unmanned police station set on fire in the Handsworth area of the city.

Police said a significant number of young people had been arrested for various offences including violent disorder and aggravated burglary.

There have been no reports of any major injuries to members of the public or police officers as a result of the disorder.
