|Description||Parliament is being recalled on Thursday in response to rioting in England, the prime minister has said. |
The government's emergency committee Cobra met on Tuesday after rioting spread across London, with violence flaring in other major cities.
"We will do everything necessary to restore order to Britain's streets and make them safe for the law-abiding," David Cameron said in Downing Street.
More than 16,000 officers will be on London streets on Wednesday, he said.
All Metropolitan Police leave has been cancelled, with the ranks swollen by reinforcements from other forces and community support officers.
More than five times the usual number of officers for a Tuesday will patrol London's streets later.
