A 44 year old father of three of Downing Street, Westminster, has been issued with an eviction notice by Westminster Council following their conviction today for taking part in the riots that swept through London earlier this week.
Sir Hugh Orde, President of the Association of Chief Police Officers, welcomed the news saying that the man, a married politician, who cannot be named for legal reasons, showed a "flagrant disregard for police authority". Calling the man "an armchair looter", he described how he had openly attempted to interfere with officers in the commission of their duties, saying that he had shown a "wilful disregard for public safety".
A representative from Westminster council said earlier that the council would take a very hard line on anyone convicted of involvement in the riots. "We cannot have people convicted of such outrageous behaviour living in public housing" they sad.
