PHOTOGRAPHS CONTINUE TO emerge showing the scale of the rioting and violence across England last night.

Nottingham, Gloucester, Central Manchester, Salford, and Liverpool all experienced rioting, looting or violence.

Videos filmed by witnesses caught up in the violence are also appearing on YouTube and TwitVid.
