Lessons in rioting criticised, full report

Meanwhile, an events firm which offers people the chance to experience what it's like to take part in a riot has been accused of encouraging street violence.

People can also take on the role of police officers, in full body armour. One MP has described it as "completely wrong" and "unacceptable", especially in light of last year's disorder in Birmingham. Lee Comley reports.

A company that offers experience days for parties and corporate entertainment has been accused of encouraging anarchy on Britain's streets.

The riot experience day is offered in an industrial park in Droitwich, Worcestershire.

Participants can dress as either rioters or the police and are armed with body armour, batons and riot shields to engage in a staged riot.

Experts also show them how to throw petrol bombs and missiles.
