An 11 year old has been given an 18-month rehabilitation order after admitting stealing a bin during the London riots.

The boy from Romford is the youngest person to be prosecuted over the disturbances in London.

He can't be named, but stole a bin from Debenhams in Romford after looters smashed the shop's windows.

It turns out he'd also been sentenced for arson and criminal damage just 5 days before the trouble started.
