The Metropolitan Police force have confirmed that at least nine of their police officers were injured in rioting that hit the streets last night, with three police officers needing hospital treatment after they were run down by a high speed car.

“At least nine officers were injuired overnight in addition to the 26 officers injured on Saturday night.
“We will not tolerate this disgraceful violence.
“The investigation continues to bring these criminals to justice”, warns Metropolitan Police Commander Christine Jones.
