Video: Latest arrests and update from police chief

The Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police, Peter Fahy, has issued this video thanking the public for their support since Tuesday night's Salford riots.

This afternoon GMP released details of two more Salford offenders who have been picked up by police.

Stefan Hoyle (born 27/01/1992) of St. Stephen Street, Salford, was jailed for four months for theft. He was arrested on Princess Street in the early hours of Wednesday 10 August 2011 after officers found him with a stolen violin.

A 15-year-old girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was given a 10-month referral order after admitting burglary. She was arrested outside a supermarket in the early hours of 10 August 2011.

Mr Fahy said: "We've been concentrating now on getting people into court, and getting support from the court services, which are now working 24 hours a day to get these offenders prosecuted."

He also called for the public who may have filmed or taken pictures of the events on Salford Precinct to get in touch so that looters or rioters can be brought to justice.

"We are not complacent and we will have more officers out on the streets," he said.

Since the violence and mayhem of Tuesday evening, Aaron Grima (born 31/05/1989), of Cromwell Road, Eccles, was jailed for four months for assaulting a police officer.
