Number of people charged/convicted of riot

The request was partially successful.

Dear Crown Prosecution Service,

I wish to request the following.

(1) The number of people charged with the s1 Public Order Act 1986 offence of Riot since the act was introduced, year by year

(2) The number of prosecutions that were successful, and the number of prosecutions that were discontinued, with the reasons for discontinuing the prosecution if possible

(3) The general circumstances in which people were charged

(for example, 2011: X people charged, Y people prosecuted, Z prosecutions discontinued; X due to lack of evidence and Y due to public interest grounds, 2011 London Riots)

Yours faithfully,

Jed Miller
