14:02, December 22, 2011

LONDON, Dec. 21 (Xinhua) -- The Metropolitan Police in London raided 100 households across the city early on Wednesday as part of its campaign to arrest people who took part in the riots, looting and arson across the city on four nights in August.

The raids began at GMT 0630 across the city, and by mid-morning, the police confirmed they had made 62 arrests.

"Today's activity is an indication that four months on from the incidents seen across London, we remain absolutely committed to identifying and arresting those responsible for the disorder," said Detective Superintendent Robin Bhairam in a statement.

Police released photographs on social media sites and then used information provided by the public to plan their series of raids.

"Searches like those carried out today are happening on a daily basis and my message to those who were involved in criminality is that you will not get away with it," Said Bhairam.
