    Riots: Violence flares in Liverpool for up to five hours

    Violence flared in Liverpool for up to five hours overnight as rioters took to the streets in the south of the city.
    Cars and wheelie bins were set alight during the disturbances which spread from the city centre to Toxteth, Dingle and Wavertree.The disorder started at about 22:00 BST and calmed down at about 03:00 BST.Police said they were dealing with "isolated outbreaks" of disorder but there were reports of hundreds of youths on the rampage.It came as London experienced a third night of violence.The force in Liverpool appeared to try to contain the troublemakers than get involved in running battles.As the night progressed the group became more fragmented as officers in riot gear and wielding batons, supported by police vans, sealed roads off.However, there were several stand-offs as rioters pelted officers with missiles, from golf clubs to bricks and bottles.
    'Tesco store looted'
    Each flashpoint would end with the mob dispersing but they often regrouped elsewhere.A particularly fierce confrontation took place near Admiral Street police station. Officers came under attack from about 100 youths, as residents looked on.After midnight, police warned members of the public to avoid the Smithdown Road, Upper Parliament Street, Lodge Lane and Lawrence Road areas.

    Princes Road and Princes Avenue was particularly badly hit, with several cars set on fire.A works van was set alight in nearby High Park Street and the windows smashed at Mount Carmel Social Club.The rioters also scattered bins across the road, setting them alight, to try to stop police pursuing them.There were reports that the Tesco Express store in Myrtle Street was looted - with some of the raiders said by witnesses to be as young as 10.However, homes do not appear to have been damaged and there were no reports of injuries.By 03:00 BST police set up roadblocks at the troublespots as police helicopters circled overhead.Residents referred to the violence as "madness" and "senseless".One said: "This is been waiting to kick off for a while. They will be back on the streets tomorrow night."
