Deputy mayor: Must be careful not to make 'excuses' for looters' behaviour

Kit Malthouse, deputy mayor of London and chair of the Metropolitan Police Authority, speaks to Sky News and urges people not to attempt to justify actions of looters:

"They're picking particular kinds of stores, whether it is because they want a new set of trainers or whatever it is.

"What we have to be careful to do, in the media and in politics, is not create some kind of atmosphere of excuse for their behaviour."
