Two rival street gangs who joined forces for a ‘devastating’ night of rioting which at the Michelin starred Ledbury restaurant have been jailed for almost twenty years today one year on from the violence.
At the height of the London riots members of the mob stormed the restaurant in Notting Hill, west London, demanding diners hand over their jewellery and mobile phones and even ripping a woman’s wedding ring off her finger.
The attack, on 8 August last year, came after two rival gangs ‘put aside their differences’ to team up for a night of violence in the area which saw a moped burned, passengers forced off a double-decker bus and looting of shops.
Sentencing at Inner London Crown Court today, Judge Usha Karu said the scenes were in ‘stark contrast’ to the sporting excellence that has been shown as London hosts the Olympics.

Anas Ibrahim, Ahmed Al Jaff and a 15-year-old who cannot be named were today jailed for their part in the Ledbury raid.
They were part of a group of 16 defendants sentenced at Inner London Crown Court for a total of 74 years, including Karl Jenson, 25, who was pinned down by television presenter Dan Snow as he came out of looting the Office shop.
Judge Karu said: ‘This was the third night of the disorder. It was a year ago today that you were involved in the mob criminality that so disturbed the law-abiding members of the public.
‘Today, in stark contrast to the scenes of arson, looting and damage, London is hosting the Olympics, which demonstrates the excellence which can be achieved in sport and is an inspiration to all. However, those involved in these events were intent on the opposite.’
She said of the attack on the Ledbury: ‘Many of those who burst in were wielding bottles and sticks. Some had knives and other sharp instruments.

‘The restaurant was busy and 30 or 40 diners were told to get down on the floor and systematically robbed of mobile phones, jewellery and even a wedding ring was pulled off the finger of a female diner.
‘Some of the customers and staff were physically attacked. They must have been terrified. The restaurant itself was ransacked.’
The violence began in the Queensway shopping centre at around 8.30pm and that ‘two gangs had put aside their differences in order to get together to perpetrate the more serious disorder which happened that night.
‘The object was to take to the streets to cause chaos and damage and to loot’, she said.
A van driver was assaulted, a Gala casino and Office shoe and a restaurant called the Bumpkin looted and attacked.
A pizza delivery man was pulled off his bike, beaten and his moped was then set alight and a double-decker bus was then targeted while driver was injured by broken glass.
Mohammed Haroon, the owner of a Supersave off-licence, was repeatedly hit over the head with a bottle of champagne as his shop was turned over and taxi driver Barry Keegan was robbed of his mobile phone when the rioters came across his cab.
Referring to the mob in the Supersave shop, Judge Karu said: ‘The gang was like a pack of hounds.’

The Ledbury attack followed and at around 11pm, police officers found themselves faced with a ‘large, hostile and confrontational gang throwing bottles.’
One of them took it upon himself to return to the police station to fetch shields and helmets for his colleagues but he was attacked en route.
He said he had ‘never been so scared in my life as I was then’ and that ‘the group saw this as fun for them and were laughing and joking.’
The night of August 8 was a ‘particularly devastating night’, she said, and as the scenes were broadcast on the national and international media, ‘Londoners watched with fear and horror at what was happening in the city. The loss to businesses, homes and livelihoods cannot be underestimated.’
Kalem Hinds, 19, was sentenced to nine years in a young offenders’ institution for conspiracy to burgle, conspiracy to commit violent disorder, wounding and robbery of Mr Haroon.
Rio Myers, 16, received four years for conspiracy to burgle, conspiracy to commit violent disorder, robbery of Mr Haroon and robbery of the taxi driver.

Karim Lamguindaz, for conspiracy to burgle and conspiracy to commit violent disorder, received a three year rehabilitation order and a tagged curfew.
Liam Hodge, 21, was sentenced to 21 months for conspiracy to handle stolen goods. Matters from Harrow and Isleworth Crown Court, including possession of cannabis and fraud bought his total to 52 months.
Tyler Brewer, 19, received 28 months for conspiracy to handle stolen goods with a total of 49 months thanks to a burglary matter from Harrow Crown Court.

Karl Jenson, 25, received three years for conspiracy to burgle and conspiracy to commit violent disorder.
Referring to his looting of the office shop and subsequent citizen’s arrest from Dan Snow, Judge Karu said: ‘Unfortunately for you, a member of the public who had witnessed the violence decided to apprehend you as you came out. You were the only one to be arrested that day but you were one of a pack.’
Travis William-Carter, 21, who was identified from a palm print left on the upturned van, received 16 months for conspiracy to commit violent disorder.
A 15-year-old who cannot be named but who was identified from his bloody on a Ledbury chef’s apron, received three years for conspiracy to commit violent disorder and robbery of the Ledbury.

The troubled UK Border Agency faces a backlog of cases equivalent to the population of Newcastle, MPs warned today.
Missing foreign criminals, failed asylum seekers, illegal immigrants and others refusing to leave the country make up more than 275,000 cases which the agency still needs to deal with, the Commons Home Affairs Select Committee said.
Keith Vaz, the committee’s chairman, said the backlog, which will take years to clear, was unacceptable, adding that the agency seems to have “acquired its own Bermuda triangle”.
“It’s easy to get in, but near impossible to keep track of anyone, let alone get them out,” the Labour MP said.
“This is the first time that the committee has collated all the cases at the UK Border Agency that await resolution. This backlog is now equivalent to the entire population of Newcastle upon Tyne.”
The latest damning report on the agency’s work also said the committee did not believe the Government’s aim of cutting the 260,000 student visas issued each year by a quarter would benefit the UK.
Students should be excluded from the net migration figures instead, it said.
Britain would then continue to attract international students, a market worth £7.9 billion, and still be able to aim to meet Prime Minister David Cameron’s pledge to cut net migration from 250,000 to the tens ofthousands by 2015, the report said.
Mr Vaz added: “This will enable the Government to encourage students to come to the UK whilst maintaining their position on curbing immigration.”
University chancellors and campaigners have urged Mr Cameron to class international students as temporary rather than permanent migrants, removing them from the figures.
But Immigration Minister Damian Green has said students staying for more than a year are not visitors and their numbers affect communities, public services and infrastructure.
Today’s report, looking at the agency’s work between December last year and March, also called for the agency to make all its inspections of colleges unannounced, rather than giving them advance notice so key people and documents can be ready.
“If we are to eliminate bogus colleges from the education landscape and employers that abuse the immigration system then visits will have to be unannounced, robust and thorough,” it said.
On the backlog, the committee said it included at least 150,000 migrants who have been refused permission to stay in the UK but who may still be in the country illegally, 21,000 asylum cases, and 3,900 foreign offenders living in the community.
A further 57 foreign criminals who were released in 2006 without being considered for deportation have not yet been traced.
And the so-called controlled archive, used for cases where the agency has lost track of the applicant, contains 80,000 asylum applications and 21,500 immigration cases, the report said.
The agency “does not have a strong record in deporting foreign national offenders” and should set up a team to examine why the foreign criminals living in the community had not been deported and then to ensure that they are sent home, the MPs said.
In future, deportation proceedings should begin as soon as a prisoner is sentenced to speed up the process, they added.
A Home Office spokesman said: “This report highlights the improvements we have made to tackle the huge backlog of cases we inherited. Over 2,000 overstayers have recently been removed following targeted enforcement activity, foreign national offenders are being removed more quickly and we are performing well against visa processing targets.
“Talented students are welcome in the UK, but we have introduced new powers to toughen up the system, keeping out the fraudulent and unqualified while ensuring genuine students continue to benefit from our excellent educational facilities.
“The report has raised some legitimate concerns about issues that we are aware of and are already tackling.”
Lutfur Rahman, the extremist-linked mayor of Tower Hamlets, went round the local mosques yesterday, urging congregations to vote for his close ally Ken Livingstone. At the Brick Lane mosque, Lutfur apparently delivered a speech at the Friday prayer, saying that Ken was Muslims’ best hope – not a view shared by many of the Muslims I know.
A gentleman called Azad Ali has also been tweeting his support for Ken.Azad is the community affairs co-ordinator of the extremist Islamic Forum of Europe, which controls the East London Mosque and which isdedicated, in its own words, to changing the “very infrastructure of society, its institutions, its culture, its political order and its creed … from ignorance to Islam.” In Ken’s last term as mayor, the East London Mosque was paid £500,000 by Livingstone’s London Development Agency to help build the IFE a new headquarters. Ken’s officials furiously protested against the grant, saying there was “no case” for an LDA contribution, but were overruled. Azad is also Ken’s vice-chair at the Unite Against Fascism organisation, and was invited to speak at Ken’s Progressive London conference last year.
Azad has written on his IFE blog of his “love” for Anwar al-Awlaki, the al-Qaeda cleric. He used to attend talks by Al-Qaeda’s main representative in the UK, Abu Qatada. He has described al-Qaeda as a “myth” and said that the Mumbai terrorist attacks were not terrorism. On his IFE blog, he advocated the killing of British troops in Iraq (he sued a newspaper for reporting this, and lost.) Filmed by an undercover reporter for my Channel 4 Dispatches on the IFE, Azad said: “Democracy, if it means at the expense of not implementing the sharia, of course no-one agrees with that.” His response to this exposure was to threaten our undercover reporter.
In 2008 IFE and Azad repaid Ken’s favours by running a campaign called “Muslims for Ken” – which boasted that “we got out the vote” in its east London heartland. There were indeed astonishing, even unbelievable swings towards Ken in Tower Hamlets last time, no doubt aided by Muslims for Ken handing out leaflets at the mosques claiming Boris would ban the Koran.
There’s not so much overt activity of that kind in 2012 – Livingstone obviously hasn’t got the public purse to buy votes with any more. But stuff appears to be going on under the surface – and the postal-vote situation is still looking extremely promising for the Kenster.
Various patriot groups will be meeting in Brighton on Saturday 2nd June to celebrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee. Meeting place will be messaged out by text. Please note this is not a demo, or a march, and colours are not to be worn. This is our country and we will not be discouraged from celebrating our patriotism by Anarchists and other unwashed tramps. See you there.

Two ‘despicable’ sex predators who raped a woman after she fell asleep on a night bus have been jailed for a total of 18-and-a-half years.
Pakistani students Rizwan Ahmad, 24, and Hassan Siddique, 19, targeted the 20-year-old as she made her way home from a night out in central London.
Snaresbrook Crown Court heard how Siddique got off the number 55 bus while Ahmad began chatting to the woman when she realised she had missed her stop.
‘Despicable’: Rizwan Ahmad, 24, (left) and Hassan Siddique, 19, have been jailed for a total of 18-and-a-half years and could face deportation
Ahmad persuaded her to get off at the next stop and said he would call her a taxi. He then phoned Siddique, a student at the London College of Business Management and Information Technology, to summon him to the scene.
The two men lured their victim down a secluded alleyway off Leabridge Road in Leyton, east London, and took turns to rape her in the early hours of June 4 last year.
During their trial Ahmad and Siddique insisted their victim had encouraged them, but the jury found both defendants guilty of rape and attempted rape.
Judge Tudor Owen said he believed the pair should be kicked out of Britain once they have served their jail terms, adding: ‘The sooner you are deported from this country, the better.’
In an impact statement the victim said the attack will ‘stay with her for the rest of her life’.
But she is determined to ensure her ordeal does not dictate her future.
Sentencing, Judge Owen told the two rapists: ‘What you did was despicable. Your story was simply ludicrous.
‘You claimed she instigated the whole thing, that it was she who wanted to engage in sexual activity with you.
‘Unsurprisingly, the jury rejected your account.
‘Women travelling alone at night are entitled not to be accosted in the way you two did.
‘She had a lot to drink but that does not mean she should have been treated in the way she was.
‘She was an easy target because she was so drunk.
‘She is now frightened of travelling alone at night, this has damaged her life.’
Jailing Ahmad for 10 years, and Siddique for eight-and-a-half years, Judge Owen added: ‘If it is necessary I will recommend most strongly that you are deported at the conclusion of your sentence.’
Ahmad, of Spruce Hills Road, Walthamstow, east London, and Siddique, of Gainsford Road, also in Walthamstow, denied rape and attempted rape.
Judge Owen commended investigating officer Detective Constable Jonathan Concanon for his part in bringing the rapists to justice.
The detective, of the Metropolitan Police’s specialist sex crime unit Sapphire, said: ‘Ahmad and Siddique demonstrated they are predatory offenders. They lulled the victim into a false sense of security before attacking her.
‘The victim showed immense bravery in coming forward and reporting this horrendous attack. I hope knowing her attackers are now behind bars will go some way towards allowing her to come to terms with what happened and to go on to have as fulfilling a future as possible.’

The Police have cited intelligence that the English Defence League, after the 11am two minute silence on the day, were planning to attack occupy protestors. In fact the only evidence that has been cited by anti-fascist groups and the Police has been one Facebook posting from one EDL member claiming that they were going to bring weapons and cause a disturbance. If the Police’s motive was to prevent a breach of the peace then why didn’t they arrest this individual and stop him going to London in the first place?
The fact is that we have to draw a line somewhere with protests but even as someone who considers myself as being tough on law and order, this seems a step too far. To have 172 people arrested because of one person’s posting on a social network site unnerves me greatly. Okay, so the Police may have had other intelligence. But is it right to treat everyone at the gathering the same, as if they are all part of some violent conspiracy when their is no evidence to suggest that they as individuals intend to break the law?
Of course lots of people won’t care because they strongly dislike the EDL. Fair enough, I’m not exactly a fan. But then lots of people also despise the student protestors who march in London. I believe that any individual who is not breaking the law and hasn’t broken the law cannot simply be boxed in and nicked – hundreds of them at a time – to “prevent a breach of the peace”. If we go down his heavy handed pre-emptive route, it could be you one day getting put in the back of a Police van because one person on your march has threatened violence. Whether you’re anti-Islam, anti-tuition fees or anti-war, the Police should not be able to arrest the whole lot of you on such flimsy grounds.
Was looking for a number to grass up some illegal workers in my local takeaway and AMAZINGLY there is no dedicated reporting line on the UKBA site, just this online form. They advise people to call crimestoppers but surely this is important enough that they have their own number?Anyway, use blue link below to report your suspicions. Especially where you see large numbers of foreigners standing waiting to be picked up in the mornings as we all do. Get number plates and vehicle details of those picking them up and get grassing. These are the cash in hand jobs illegals go for. The Chief of the MET once said if he removed the one million illegals he suspected were in London it would “close down the restaurant trade overnight”, SHAME.
Reporting form on link above to report people working illegally in takeaways on farms or bogus colleges etc
The conference takes place on Saturday 25 Februaryfrom 10am to 4.30pm at Conway Hall, 25 Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4RL. The nearest tube Holborn.
We didnt ask these Marxist, anti British goons to start attacking us and deciding they werent going to allow us to hold demos or have freedom of speech, it was their decision entirely. Anyone not going to the Manchester demo (which may be changed anyway) feel free to attend here so we can have our say. NFSE
A jury has cleared two men of encouraging looting or rioting via Facebook messages during last August’s civil disturbances.
Karl Manley, 28, from Lancaster, wrote “PC World Lancaster, 7.30pm. Let the looting begin. Could do with a new laptop” on Facebook on 9 August.
Stefan Johnson, of Heysham, posted the same message on his Facebook status.
The two men, who told the jury the messages were meant as a joke, were acquitted at Lancaster Crown Court.
‘Jokes and banter’
Police officers went to the store after the message was posted on the social networking site by Mr Manley but no incidents took place, the court heard.
The jury took 30 minutes to clear the pair.
Following the verdicts, Judge Heather Lloyd told the defendants she had “absolutely no quarrel” with the jury’s findings but branded the pair “idiots”.
She told them: “Your behaviour was criminally irresponsible and reprehensible. It cost a great deal of time and resources to deal with the matter.
“I hope that it is never repeated again.”
Giving evidence, Mr Manley said: “At the time on Facebook there was loads of jokes going around and banter.
“Looking back now it was a mistake. I generally just thought of it as a bit of a joke amongst my friends.”
Mr Johnson, a data processor, replied to Mr Manley’s post: “That is brilliant. Sorry but I am going to have nick that status!”
He told the jury: “I thought it was funny because Karl Manley is an innocent guy. It was just a sarcastic joke.”
Outside court, Mr Manley said he was glad it was “all over”.
Mr Johnson gave no comment.
