Boy, 12, locked up in riots trial

Belfast Telegraph
A 12-year-old boy has become one of the youngest trouble-makers to be convicted of taking part in last summer's riots.

The schoolboy was given a six-month youth detention order at Stratford Magistrates' Court, in east London, after admitting that he smashed a shop window, Scotland Yard said.

He caused more than £6,000-worth of damage by shattering glass outside the Golden Ivy Florist in South Street, Romford.

CCTV footage from August 8 showed the boy repeatedly kicking the glass in an attempt to gain entry and then appearing to try to encourage others to join in.
