Twitter users could face arrest for inciting violence in the wake of two nights of unrest in London, a Scotland Yard chief warned today.
Deputy Assistant Commissioner Stephen Kavanagh confirmed officers were looking at the website as part of investigations into widespread looting and rioting.
Acting Commissioner Tim Godwin pledged a robust response to some of the ”pure criminality” seen in recent days.
Amid speculation that police could have done more to contain the eruption of trouble, Mr Godwin said he was immensely proud to be a Scotland Yard officer.
