London's Heart's been told Scotland Yard has spent more on the riots than all 42 major events last year put together.

The Metropolitan Police Authority has revealed the violence earlier this month will cost the Force more than £34 million.

The figure is expected to rise further as final bills from other forces called in to help are settled.
