Today parliament held an emergency session, called in response to the riots, in which David Cameron told parliament that riots and looting of the kind that spread across England in the last week will not be tolerated.
Tonight David Grossman will report on how the debate unfolded and whether it brings us any closer to a proper diagnosis of what went wrong. And we speak to Labour Party leader Ed Miliband.
We discuss the role of parents and whether lack of discipline and family breakdown have been factors in the unrest with guests including the singer Jamelia.
And as David Cameron says that police have admitted they got their riot tactics wrong, we speak to the president of the Association of Chief Police Officers Sir Hugh Orde.
