Risk of riots ‘higher than ever’ in UK say Labour

Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Risk of riots ‘higher than ever’ in UK say Labour” – below is their description.

It has been a decade since riots swept across towns and cities in England leaving high streets in ruins and communities in shock.

A report on the violence, which began in London following the shooting of Mark Duggan by police, made a number of recommendations and today Labour has said they were not listened to.

They say that 10 years on, the risk of those scenes being repeated is “higher than ever”.

We spoke to Darra Singh, the chair of a report from 2012 which assessed the causes of the riots.
