CCTV video shows 'attempted police murder' during London riots

As British police released CCTV footage showing officers being knocked over whilst chasing looters in London the deputy prime minister vowed that criminals would be punished. Nick Clegg said on Tuesday that those affected by the rioting would "see people in visible orange clothing making up for the damage done," to their communities. He was talking about crimes like the ones seen in CCTV footage released by the Metropolitan Police showing a gang looting a shop and running off. Two police officers were mown down by a car whilst they were dealing with the group in East London on 8 August. The video has been released by detectives in the hope it will encourage people to come forward and identify those responsible.
