Riots debate: Is more intervention needed?


In the second part of last night's riots debate, panelists and an invited audience debated the issue of intervention: should local authorities or government intervene more to prevent wrong doing?

Amongst the panellists for this part of the evening were Dame Claire Tickell, chief executive of Action for Children; Liam Nolan, head teacher of Perry Beeches secondary school in Birmingham; Shaun Bailey, one of the strongest proponents of the prime minister's "big society" project, and Sheldon Thomas, a former gang member who works with difficult young people in east end of London.
