A thousand-strong police force will be out in London on Tuesday night as officers prepare for a fourth night of disturbances.

More than 500 people have now been arrested.

Kids Company founder Camilla Batmanghelidjh has told Radio 5 live that the people rioting are the "ignored underclass" and that this is them "taking revenge''.
