A TEENAGER who took part in looting during last year's riots has been jailed in a young offenders' institution.

Jamal Mullings,19, of Kitchener Road in Walthamstow, burgled shops in Tottenham on August 6 after a protest against the police shooting of Mark Duggan turned violent.

The riot sparked copycat looting and disorder across the capital which then spread to other areas of England.

Mullings was convicted along with five other men who were also involved in the initial riot at Wood Green Crown Court.

He was sentenced to 21 months in a young offenders' institution - 18 months for violent disorder and three months for burglary.
