Ken Livingstone: 'Riots show anger and disaffection'


Violence has broken out for a third consecutive day in London, with riot police deployed and firefighters tackling blazes across the capital.

Cars were set on fire in Lewisham and a bus and shop were set ablaze in Peckham. A large furniture shop in Croydon was also torched.

In Hackney, police sealed off an area after police car windows were smashed.

The former Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, condemned the violence, but said that young people need hope and opportunities.
