Olympics Ambasador, 18, ‘trashed cop car’


Arrested ... Chelsea Ives was 'spotted on TV'

A TEENAGE girl accused of wrecking a police car in the riots is a London Olympics ambassador.

Chelsea Ives, 18, was arrested after her parents allegedly saw her on TV during the mayhem in Enfield and called police.

Mum Adrienne, 43, said: "I have no regrets. I love my daughter but she was brought up to know right from wrong."

Chelsea is said to have hurled a rock through a shop window while rioting - then yelled excitedly to a friend: "This is the best day ever."

She was behind bars last night after parents Adrienne and Roger turned her in when they allegedly saw her on TV attacking a police car.

Adrienne said: "We've no regrets and would do the same again.

"My children have always been taught right from wrong. We were not being brave, it's what any right-thinking person would have done."

Police yesterday revealed half of the 240 London riot suspects who have appeared in court so far are under 18.

By 7am this morning, cops had arrested 1,051 in London while 591 had been charged. More than 1,500 have been arrested nationwide.

Chelsea, a talented athlete and singer, is among a group of Londoners picked to be ambassadors for the 2012 Olympics.

They are supposed to represent pride in our capital city — and will officially welcome visitors.

Adrienne told of the horrifying moment she and Roger saw Chelsea flash on to their TV screens during Sunday night's appalling violence in Enfield, North London.

She said: "We were watching the riots. It was sickening. Then we saw her. To say we were shocked...

"Not only was it someone we knew, it was our daughter. She's studying A-levels, is a fine sportswoman and a great singer - a beautiful, creative and talented child.

"I love her. But look at what she's done. These riots have cost people their jobs and even lives. We are going through hell."

Roger, 54, said Chelsea wept when they confronted her on her return home to Leytonstone, East London.

He added: "There were a lot of tears. She did not try to stop us phoning the police, she knew there was no point.

"The police were rushed off their feet but they eventually came to the house to take her. The policeman said we had been brave.

"It was devastating when she was led away. I don't want my daughter to go to prison. But we would do the same again."

Adrienne added: "Certain people might call me a grass but I'm not bothered about that.

"Many parents will know their children have been involved. I urge them to do what we did."

Chelsea was remanded in custody during an overnight sitting of Westminster Magistrates.

Horror on TV ... mum Adrienne

She denied violent disorder, burglary at Phones 4U and Vodafone stores and causing £5,000 of damage to a police car.

Prosecutor Becky Owens claimed Chelsea had shouted to a friend: "This is the best day ever!" - then hurled a rock at a shop window.

She was among a mob of about a dozen that attacked the squad car, the court was told.

Chelsea is said to have thrown a brick and plastic roadworks barriers at the vehicle.

She was allegedly pictured in a bright pink cardigan beside two hooded youths, one of whom was waving a chunk of wood at the car's shattered windscreen.

When the Tottenham riots started, Chelsea posted on Facebook saying the police were to blame - and it was the shopkeepers' fault if they were looted.

Chelsea, who has a brother of 16, was chosen two years ago to represent a local soccer-based charity for youngsters with communication skills.

Violent spell ... what Chelsea wrote during the first riot night

She went to the House of Commons to promote the scheme with ex-Arsenal star Martin Keown and former sports minister Richard Caborn.

Chelsea has also met Britain's Olympics chief Seb Coe and London Mayor Boris Johnson.

There is space in England and Wales's 139 prisons for 2,500 riot thugs, the Ministry of Justice confirmed yesterday.

Tory MP Patrick Mercer said: "These spaces must be utilised as fast as possible. These thugs need to be locked up now."

THE millionaire's daughter accused of looting was yesterday in hiding at her family's home. Laura Johnson, 19, was allegedly caught driving away from a riot in Charlton with stolen goods worth £5,500.

She was bailed on burglary charges to her parents' £1million home in Orpington, Kent.

A BOY of 18 was charged today with criminal damage and recklessly endangering life after a Miss Selfridge store in Manchester was torched on Tuesday night. Dane Williamson, 18, from Salford, will appear at Manchester Magistrates' Court later today.

I think her parents should NOT be shot, unlike all the other parents that had one of their precious snowflakes out looting.

I'm confused. I thought all these rioters were poor people. She must have stole those clothes, jewelry and makeup from a previous riot.
Those are the kind of parents the world needs more of. I guarantee had it been me when I was a kid my parents would have called the cops in a heartbeat.
Wow, a responsible parent who didn't think their special angel couldn't commit such an act, inspite of evidence. Bravo ol' chaps

It's payback time for the looters: Police snatch squads swoop on homes of riot suspects in a string of dawn raids across London

Police took revenge on dozens of riot looters last night as they kicked in their front doors and hauled them into the street.

Riot officers armed with battering rams descended on a string of properties as they looked for pay back over the chaos that swept the country.

The officers collared one suspect at a home in Brixton after receiving a tip off that he had been involved in the disturbances.

He is likely to be the first of hundreds more who are brought to justice as a huge public backlash grows against the troublemakers.

The police action came as the rioters' reign of terror seemingly evaporated into the night.

Just as the first bursts of violence in Tottenham came from nowhere, so the trouble unexpectedly receded. Contributory factors may have included the fact that police forces throughout the nation were braced for action with as many blue uniformed bodies as they could put on the street; 16,000 in London alone.

Perhaps the three deaths in Birmingham yesterday prompted a rethink by some. And with the arrest figures in London alone up to 888 perhaps there were just too few rioters and looters to cause the same level of disturbance.

But with no serious incidents overnight, simply a procession of charged rioters trudging through overnight court sittings, the lull in violence begs the question: Is the worst over?

On Wednesday youths had rampaged through Manchester's city centre, turning it into a war zone, and boasted that the government had lost control of the cities. They pledged to continue as long as they could.

And even if they do get caught, they are not afraid of the consequences, with one telling BBC Radio 4's Today programme: 'What are they gonna do? Give me an Asbo? I'll live with that.'

London remained relatively calm on Tuesday evening thanks to a mammoth police presence, but looting and thuggery continued in Birmingham and Liverpool, and broke out for the first time in Manchester, Nottingham and Gloucester.

Regional forces, seemingly caught on the back foot after donating hundreds of riot officers to help the Met regain control of the capital, struggled to contain hundreds of yobs who took to the high streets to loot.

But the Met pledged that policing numbers would remain at an unprecedented high for the second night in a row, leaving forces elsewhere without crack teams trained for public disorder as they saw 16,000 police on the streets.

Scotland Yard today said that 888 people had now been arrested in connection with violence, disorder and looting in the capital, with 371 charged.

On Wednesday a police source told Mail Online that while there were no early reports of trouble in the capital, there will remain a 'higher more visible police presence on the streets'.

'The policing will be widespread across the capital,' he added, 'and as we have done on previous nights we will be concentrating on areas where we have the most concerns.'

In Manchester, where rioters rampaged through the central shopping district, burning and looting shops and fighting running battles with police, police said they were making no special preparations.

Greater Manchester Police said that they were not expecting a second night of violence in the city, but did concede that there would be more police on standby than were available to commanders last night.

A source said: 'There's not a lot happening. It's raining here at the moment and we're doing our rain dance and hoping they [the rioters] will keep away.

'We have certainly got more officers tonight than last night, but whether they are out or not is another matter because there's nothing happening.'

Enforcers: Police prepare to raid a home in Brixton as the round-up of riot suspects continued

However, rioters quoted by BBC Radio showed a terrifying sense of impunity about their role in the violent clashes that gripped the heart of the city last night.

'Why are you going to miss the opportunity to get free stuff,' one asked a reporter during the unrest last night.

'The government are not in control because if they were we wouldn't be able to do it would we?'

The young looters told the Today programme that they were unconcerned about being caught and did not expect that they would have to suffer as a result of their crimes.

'This will be my first offence,' continued the young miscreant. 'I've not been in trouble before so I'm not really bothered.

'I'll get a caution. The prisons are full.'

The Metropolitan Police's Deputy Assistant Commissioner, Stephen Kavanagh, said some of his officers were disappointed with the sentences handed out so far to looters.

He told BBC Breakfast: 'That has been personally raised by me and others, and the commissioner I know has also raised it, so we will move through those issues and I am confident we will get the support of the courts.'

He said the huge policing presence on the streets would continue for another night, and would then be reviewed.

He added that more than 100 arrest warrants were being executed this morning.

Elsewhere in the country, police were confident they would be able to keep control of the streets.

West Midlands Police, responsible for maintaining order in three areas where lawlessless broke out last night promised that there were enough officers to protect communities.

In Birmingham, three men out on the streets to protect their community were tragically killed after a rioter hit them with a car, while in West Bromwich and Wolverhampton youths ran amok.

In a statement published on the force's website, Chief Constable Chris Sims promised that 600 specially trained riot officers would be deployed across the region.

Pitched battles: Mounted police outside the Arndale Centre in Manchester's main shopping district last night. The city was gripped by violence as youths looted and pillaged shops

All leave for West Midlands officers has been cancelled and the force has, where possible, suspended other operations, Mr Sims said.

Nottinghamshire Police is also deploying more officers tonight after Nottingham was rocked by civil disorder that saw a mob firebomb a police station.

A spokesman for the force told MailOnline that they had not sent any officers to help with the policing effort in London and that they had been given operational support by South Yorkshire police.

She said that the force were 'more than prepared' for any outbreaks of violence but added that intelligence indicated the city would be quieter tonight.

In Gloucester, a dispersal order covering areas where violence broke out will come into from tomorrow and last until February 11, 2012.

The order is being introduced in response to an increase in groups behaving in an anti-social way and intimidating local residents and shoppers.

'The order allows police or Police Community Support Officers to direct any groups of two or more to leave the area for 24 hours when they believe the behaviour of the group is likely to result in members of the public being harassed, alarmed or distressed,' a force spokesman said.

'Dispersal orders provide us with an effective tool which we can use at our discretion to ensure that those who intimidate others can be ordered to leave an area and receive a strong punishment if they ignore the order.'

Earlier today, the police were given the green light to use water cannons with 24 hours' notice.

David Cameron, the Prime Minister, said that plans had been put in place to deal with the disorder using water cannons - making it the first time they would be used on the streets of mainland Britain.

The comments were seen as U-turn on what Home Secretary Theresa May said earlier this week when she ruled out the use of water cannons.

The 'softly softly' approach has been shelved and police will finally be given the backing to come down hard on offenders.

'Police are already authorised to use baton rounds and we agreed at Cobra that, while they are not currently needed, we now have in place contingency plans for water cannons to be available at 24 hours' notice,' Mr Cameron said in a speech outside Downing Street this morning.

'Whatever resources the police need they will get. What ever tactics they feel they need they will have legal backing to do so.'

Mr Cameron insisted the 'fightback' by police was succeeding today after a fourth night of rioting across the country. He said a 'more robust approach' by Scotland Yard last night had prevented a repeat of the worst trouble.

The PM said it was 'simply not acceptable' that violence was taking place and had spread to Manchester, Birmingham and Nottingham overnight.

A suspected looter in this week’s riots and his mother are being thrown out of their council home.

In the first case of its kind, Daniel Sartain-Clarke, 18, and his mother have been served with an eviction notice as council bosses seek to turf them out of their £225,000 taxpayer-subsidised flat.

Sartain-Clarke is charged with violent disorder and attempting to steal electronic goods from the Currys store at Clapham Junction, South London, on Monday night.

Under housing rules his mother – as the tenant – can be evicted from their two-bedroom flat in Battersea if anyone living there is involved in criminality.

There is likely to be a flood of similar cases as council leaders across England respond to public demands that looters face the toughest penalties possible.

In another day of dramatic developments:

A serving paratrooper was remanded in custody charged with looting a £1,900 electric guitar in Manchester;
The Ministry of Justice revealed that the arrest total had reached 1,600, and that 796 of those had already been before courts;
Police were in revolt against the Government after criticism of their handling of the crisis by the Prime Minister and Home Secretary;
Fresh revelations emerged about the gangster background of Mark Duggan, whose death sparked the riots.

Sartain-Clarke was arrested after more than 100 looters went on the rampage on Monday night. For two hours, the mob ransacked mobile phone stores and sports shops such as Foot Locker and JD Sports.

He appeared before magistrates in Battersea on Wednesday and pleaded not guilty to burglary and violent disorder. He and two co-defendants were remanded in custody.

Evicted: His mother Maite de la Calva, left, says she and daughter Revecca will have nowhere to go if thrown out of their Battersea council flat

Last night Ravi Govindia, the leader of Wandsworth Council, which issued the eviction notice, said he wanted the ‘strongest possible action’ taken against rioters and looters.

‘This council will do its utmost to ensure that those who are responsible pay a proper price,’ he said. ‘Ultimately this could lead to eviction from their homes.

‘Our officers will continue to work with the courts to establish the identities of other council tenants or members of their households as more cases are processed in the coming days and weeks.

‘Most residents on our housing estates are decent law-abiding citizens who will have been sickened at the scenes they witnessed on their TV screens this week.

‘As much as anything else we owe it to them to send out a strong signal that this kind of violence will not be tolerated.’

But Sartain-Clarke’s mother said her human rights had been ‘taken for granted’.

Spanish-born Maite de la Calva, 43, said: ‘I understand there are people who have got to face justice because all this has been madness and savagery.

‘But, I believe our human rights have been completely taken for granted. Daniel was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

‘As a mother, I’m not responsible for my son’s actions and they are penalising me for his actions.’

The part-time worker said the decision had left her ‘very upset’ and she did not know where she and daughter Revecca, eight, would go.

Sartain-Clarke is being held at Feltham Prison, and his mother said he was ‘terrified’ of other prisoners and gangsters.

She said: ‘The other prisoners have been threatening the rioters. Daniel doesn’t know how to fight or defend himself. It’s breaking my heart right now. I left him so afraid.’

She claimed her son helped out in the community and had no history of trouble.

‘He’s a staunch member of the church,’ she said. ‘My son didn’t have a hoodie or balaclava. His face was clean and open. He’s very passive. He’s even been diagnosed with depression because he’s too passive.’

She added that his girlfriend J-Niel Starkei, 18, who was also arrested, had a promising career ahead of her.

She said: ‘She’s a nice girl, not a troublemaker. She was going to start an apprenticeship this September in event management and work part-time at a casino at Westfield shopping centre.’

Yesterday other councils including Manchester and Nottingham announced plans to evict the families of trouble-makers hauled before the courts for looting.

Bosses at Manchester City Council said they are preparing to evict the family of a 12-year-old boy photographed stealing a £7.49 bottle of wine from a Sainsbury’s store.

The boy was charged with burglary and was given a nine-month referral order on Thursday, which means he must see a probation officer once a fortnight. His 33-year-old mother, who has a

14-year-old daughter and a husband soon to be released from prison, said losing their home was her ‘biggest fear’ but admitted there was no excuse for his behaviour.

On a visit to Manchester yesterday, David Cameron repeated his determination to see looters evicted from council houses.

‘For too long we’ve taken a too-soft attitude towards people that loot and pillage their own community,’ he told BBC TV’s North West Tonight.

‘If you do that you should lose your right to the sort of housing that you’ve had at subsidised rates. Obviously, that will mean they’ve got to be housed somewhere else.

‘They’ll have to find housing in the private sector and that will be tougher for them, but they should have thought of that before they started burgling.’

And speaking during a visit to riot-hit businesses in Manchester, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg made it clear that it was right that local authorities should consider eviction.

He said: 'If you go out and trash other people's houses, you burn cars, you loot and smash up shops - in other words, if you show absolutely no sense of respect to your own community - then, of course, questions need to be asked whether the community should support you in living in that community.

'I think that is a perfectly fair question to ask, but how you apply it needs to be done in a case-by-case way.

'The principle that if you are getting some support from the community, you are going to have to show some loyalty to that community is a really, really important one.'

Labour leader Ed Miliband, in Hackney, added: 'When council tenants sign agreements they sign up to agreements about behaviour, and local authorities have powers to deal with those things.

'What local authorities need to do is weigh up the decisions that they are making. If they think there are ways in which we can encourage parental responsibly then they should make those right decisions but they should always do so in a way that is actually going to help local communities and not harm them.'

Earlier this week a petition calling for the thieves to lose all their welfare handouts became the first to be passed to Parliament under a new scheme.

It gathered more than 100,000 signatures – the threshold to trigger a Commons debate. The petition received so much web traffic that it crashed under the strain.

Well I guess you should not have gone looting then...


The Only Thing Bigger Than My Head
I could have sworn she was standing next to Gary Coleman. Her parents should get some kind of award for turning her in. It's the right thing to do, and no award should be necessary, but I think one is deserved since you NEVER see anyone do this. As for the welfare leeches, they deserve whatever monetary and criminal punishment their government decides to give them.
