45 Year-Old Mark Rayner Jailed For 15 Years
Police Deny Trouble
Police in Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire have both insisted there was no trouble in their areas on Monday 8 August 2011, despite social media website rumours.
Bedfordshire Police say speculation that rioting had begun in Bedford and Luton was untrue, and they quickly posted messages on Facebook and Twitter to reassure communities that all was quiet across the county.
The force say extra police officers were sent to known hotspot areas in Bedfordshire to help stop any problems developing.
Just a handful of small fires were started, which Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Service responded to as 'business as usual'. The force say no-one was injured.
Bedfordshire have also been helping out the Met Police in London, and they've also offered space to keep people arrested in custody.
Hertfordshire Police say there were no incidents of criminal disorder in Herts on Monday night. There were disturbances on Sunday night in Waltham Cross and Cheshunt.
Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Thames Valley Police are all asking petrol stations not to sell fuel to people filling up cans and bottles. Shops are also being asked to think about removing high value items from their windows overnight.
An 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering Leonne Weeks, 16, who was found dead on a path in Rotherham.
