Children under 12 involved in Leicester disturbances

From the BBC Leicester news pages:
Leicester's mayor Sir Peter Soulsby, said he had seen children aged under 12 taking part in the riots.

"I was totally bemused really because this wasn't any sort of protest or anything that had any meaning to it all. These were kids.

"What on earth do their parents think they are doing letting them run around the city centre doing this sort of damage?"
Ah, but if Sir Peter had read my post They're not youths, they're very naughty boys from April of this year, he would not have been so surprised.
