More than one in four young people believe that the riots seen last summer could be repeated this year, a survey has found.
It reveals that many youngsters say boredom, copycat behaviour, peer pressure, jealousy and fears about the future caused last year's scenes of disorder and violence, and that little has changed.
About three in ten of thosequestioned also said that the sentences and punishments handed out to those whotook part in the riots were too soft.
