Assistant chief constable of Greater Manchester Police Garry Shewan said: "This is a prime example of how quickly we are working. Only 18 hours after the incident, we have turned around the CCTV and identified someone we want to speak to in connection with this offence.

"We will work just as quickly through all the hundreds of hours of material at our disposal to ensure the right people end up in front of the courts and face justice for their actions."

Police reinforcements from other forces have been drafted in to avoid a repeat of Tuesday night's disorder in both Manchester and Salford.

Around 1,000 police were on duty on Tuesday night - with 800 in Manchester city centre - but those numbers have been bolstered with officers from other North West forces and wider areas joining them.

Manchester returned to some sense of normality earlier as around 200 volunteers gathered at Piccadilly Gardens where they were equipped with brushes, bags and gloves and sent out to help with the clean-up of the city.

Passers-by in Market Street took pictures of the burnt-out Miss Selfridge shop on their mobile phones while staff at other stores like Nike, Jessops and numerous phone shops and supermarkets tried their best to get back to normal after their front windows had been smashed in.

no one makes any attempt to put out the fire.
He typical looks like a sore loser. hope they recognize him in combi with the bag he's carrying on his back.
Let him pay for everything for the rest of his life after his 10 year jail sentence.

Police will be allowed to use water cannons on rioters after children as young as nine looted stores and made off with bottles of wine and Vodka in fresh violence that flared around the UK yesterday.
The children wore tracksuits and innocently disregarded covering their faces as they ran through the shattered glass of supermarkets to fill their pockets with looted goods.
Today, the police were given the green light to use water cannons with 24 hours notice. Prime Minister David Cameron said that plans had been put in place to deal with the disorder.
'Contingency plans have been made for water cannons to be used at 24 hours notice,' Cameron said in a speech outside Downing Street this morning.
'Whatever resources the police need they will get. What ever tactics they fell they need they will have legal backing to do so.'
The disturbances yesterday came as 16,000 police officers were deployed on London's streets in a bid to head off a fourth night of the violence which spiralled out of control across dozens of suburbs on Saturday night.

Just watch the human rights crowd start in now about how we need to protect these bastards rights when they've been caught!!
If we as a country don't prosecute and jail these losers then they will just take over the country next time.

Miss Selfridge shop fire charges dropped against teen

An 18-year-old man who was held in custody accused of setting fire to a Miss Selfridge store during riots in Manchester has had his charges dropped.


Dane Williamson of Broughton Road, Salford, was charged with criminal damage and being reckless over property damage or endangering life.

He had been remanded to Forest Bank prison by Manchester magistrates but has now been released without charge.

Police said a 50-year-old man had been arrested on suspicion of arson.

The man has been bailed until September pending further inquiries.

Mr Williamson's solicitor said after he was charged, that it was a case of mistaken identity.

He appeared at Manchester Crown Court on Thursday where a provisional trial date was set for January next year but he was informed later that day that the case had been discontinued.

'Undermined case'

A spokeswoman for the Crown Prosecution Service said: "In accordance with The Code for Crown Prosecutors all cases are subject to continuous review.

"We carried out a further review of this case following the discovery of new information by the police during their proactive investigation and concluded that there was no longer sufficient evidence for a realistic prospect of conviction.

"The evidence against Mr Williamson was based on recognition from visual recordings. However following the charge the police discovered CCTV footage which significantly undermined the case."

Greater Manchester Police said: "Following consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service the case of Dane Williamson of Broughton Road, Salford who was charged with criminal damage, recklessly endangering life has been discontinued. He has now been released without charge."

During his time in custody Mr Williamson's flat was seriously damaged by fire on 15 August at about 00:30 BST.

A GMP spokeswoman said: "No-one was injured. The cause of the fire is still under investigation but is not believed to be deliberate."

Miss Selfridge in Market Street, was set on fire on the evening of 9 August, causing damage estimated at £300,000.
