"Like everyone else - I watched the horror unfold on breaking news throughout the evening and night - as what started in Tottenham spread across our capital city and beyond.

"The bloody scenes of violence, peppered with raging fires, indicate that we have people in our communities who care nothing for the rule of law and order, nothing for human life and nothing for peoples' livelihoods. And there can be no justifications and nowhere to hide from such behaviour. We all need to stand together on this and condemn all those who perpetrated these acts. No ifs - no buts.

"David Cameron will chair an emergency meeting of Cobra this morning - and no doubt there will be following announcements on actions to be taken to restore law and order to our streets."
