Man Sentenced for Inciting Rioters

Terry Balson from Islington set up a Facebook page, encouraging people to go out in Barnet and Wood Green on the third night of disturbances.

72 members of the public, mainly Barnet residents, called the police about Terry Balson's comments. The furthest call came from a resident of Birmingham.

The 20 year old was named and shamed on Facebook groups and Twitter as the person behind the campaign.

He has been sentenced to 2 years in a young offenders institute.
