live from our studios in central moscow you're watching are with me and he said now it's two pm here in the russian capital eleven am in london and sporadic violence has broken out in cities across the u.k. for a fourth night in a row more than half a dozen violent hotspots have flared up over the past few days buildings were set ablaze and shops looted hundreds of people have been arrested and one man has been confirmed dead were and that is in the british capital with the latest. we saw a lot of trouble in birmingham last night which we also had seen on the previous night manchester and self it also flared up in quite a serious way as to its variety of sort of small towns in the surrounding areas so this violence has now spread out words from the capital into really improbable small towns all over the country we're hearing reports that three people were killed in birmingham when they were run a vote by a car that was just running amok and the police are looking at investor looting
6:02 am
murder inquiry the reason that it was under control last night we think is because an additional ten thousand police bringing the number of police to take it sixteen thousand were working on the streets of london last night they had permission to use rubber bullets if they had to a supply of rubber bullets was available to them we haven't heard any reports of us having to be actually deployed we still fires in other parts of the country police being attacked with rocks and with petrol bombs so really this is this is something that is now nationwide parliament will come back and meet today coming back from that some a break to deal with the situation but i have to say that a lot of people were very disappointed in david cameron statement yesterday they were expecting him to come in here and say this is out of control we have to do something concrete about him what we're going to do is this this and this in fact he didn't say that parliament is coming back today they're going to they're going

to hold a debate which a lot of people said you know we don't need a debate right now what we need is actual action but the government and not proposing to introduce any emergency legislation to deal with the situation in these communities in which the violence is taking place so hugely socially deprived there's nothing for young people to do around here really large social problems at a time when when the u.k. is spending an awful lot of money a broad base in libya and in afghanistan and that's the subject of my report. across england and wales more than eleven thousand police have. already been laid off in austerity measures by two thousand and fifteen a total of thirty four thousand will go meanwhile london and other cities are taken over by thugs the police have not been anywhere where the police if the police were hitting all that would have been i think the need to price rises out a little bit better i don't think they're doing everything they can and i don't mean to be more violent i think we need to be more constant while police numbers are being cut the estimated cost of the war in afghanistan from two thousand and
6:04 am
one to the end of last month was thirty billion dollars all taxpayer cash british forces are also heavily involved in libya despite the ministry of defense being required to lose thirty two thousand start m.e.p. gerard batten says money's being spent on foreign wars that should be spent at home but i think that the point has come where we have to call in the armed forces. and . criminality across the whole of long what we should do in my view is pull our troops back from these pointless wars in afghanistan in iraq. as money spent on two wars in foreign lands parts of london birmingham liverpool and bristol i sensually get partly because of high immigration but also because young people in these communities have no prospects they're bored and disaffected and as the cuts bite that's not going to improve

a classroom youth worker told me four out of eight youth centers have closed since last year it's about investing in our communities we when you take away the money from the police in the way the money for youth work. i mean i could never imagine such consequences to be honest this is. a consequence of tuesday night saw sixteen thousand police officers on the streets of london according to the metropolitan police the force is being stretched more than ever before. and increasingly londoners are talking about taking matters into their own hands bringing with it to ation under control is just the beginning its goal being that it's not just about cleaning up it's about communities coming to terms with the fact that even at the current numbers if violence is widespread enough the police seem unable to retain control the feeling of insecurity in these communities is likely to remain for some time particularly if the police keep disappearing from

the b. door and it's up to london where correspondents are keeping a close eye on the events as they unfold in london and beyond bringing you the latest updates on twitter you can follow the feed at r.t. underscore problem and one of her latest tweets laura says that londoners have taken to the streets of the british capital in a mass cleanup operation people armed with hands and brushes unite together to tidy up and that's going to argue underscore calm throughout the day for more details from laura in london. now the fatal shooting of police by police of a black man in london that sparked the riots is under investigation that's after the police watchdog said there's no evidence mark duggan was first to fire at officers as initially had been claimed investigative journalist tony gosling says the force how does have a bad record. we've had something like three hundred and
6:07 am
forty deaths mostly of ethnic minorities in police custody over the last twelve years now that's around about one a month without a single conviction of a police officer we also need to know the names of the police officers and the firearms people who shot mark duggan and we also i would say as a society would be nice to see those that officer who fired that fatal shot arrested and that would give a lot of confidence that the police are not above the law because that's what many of these young people are saying i'm not excusing the violence or the burning of course that's criminal behavior which should be punished but you have to understand that there is a big reasons for this but i've been going on for many years and particularly the mistreatment of ethnic minorities by the police in both in custody and by the rather ruthless way they seem to arrest them. as we have full coverage online of the situation on the streets of london during these riots our website has the footage of london from living nightmare to our dot com takeover.
