Prime Minister David Cameron has taken a strong stance in his plans to fight back against rioters by giving the green light to the use of water cannons where needed.
If used it would be the first time water cannon have been deployed on mainland Britain, having only ever been used in Ulster before in the UK.
Mr Cameron said the violence seen throughout the UK over the past four nights was 'despicable' and has vowed to 'do whatever is neccesary' to deal with the riots, and going as far as to say 'nothing is off the table'.
“There are pockets of our society that are not only broken, but frankly sick...It is a complete lack of responsibility in parts of our society, people allowed to feel that the world owes them something," Mr Cameron said following the emergency 'Cobra' meeting to discuss how best to deal with the riots.
The Prime Minister also rebutted criticisms from London Mayor Boris Johnson about proposed cuts in police numbers.
“Mayors, local authorities, always want more money, I don’t blame them for that, it’s the government job to make sure they get want they need and get the most out of what they’ve got.” all mayors “want more money,” he said.
“We won’t do anything that will reduce the number of visible police on our streets.”
In response to the looters that have run wild on the streets of London and other major UK cities Mr Cameron called into questioning the parenting of those involved.
