British Prime Minister David Cameron recalled Parliament from its summer recess to deal with the expanding riots. The riots in London continued for a third night, causing British Prime Minister David Cameron to cut his vacation in Italy short and return to deal with the expanding chaos.
Disorder spread to Birmingham and Liverpool, and a man was shot dead amidst chaos in Croydon, a borough in South London. In response to the burgeoning crisis, Cameron recalled Parliament from its summer recess and increased the number of police on the streets from 6,000 to 16,000.
Cameron denounced the “sickening scenes of people looting, vandalizing, thieving, robbing,” and told rioters, “You will feel the full force of the law. And if you are old enough to commit these crimes, you are old enough to face the punishment.” According to London’s Metropolitan police, over 500 people have been arrested and 100 have been charged.
