Steve Kavanagh, Metropolitan police deputy assistant commissioner, explains how the Metropolitan police service is utilising extra officers to deal with the aftermath of the riots:
"In the early hours of this morning we started knocking on doors to arrest people. We have got more than 100 warrants which we will be working our way through over the coming hours and days.
"With so many officers on duty we want to use their time by going out there and arresting burglars, robbers and thieves - those people who cause concern and crime in our communities.
"Some of those warrants are also directly linked to Operation Withern's ongoing investigation."
