VIDEO: GMP TAU Cop Recalls Riots

HERE'S a video interview Confidential received from Greater Manchester Police.

Inspector Bob Cantrell, from GMP's tactical aid unit, was at the sharp end of the disorder three months ago, as he and his team tried to police the widespread looting and rioting that left the city centre with a bloody nose and the rest of Manchester's law-abiding residents in shock.

Here he speaks about that night, what's been done since and why he's still annoyed at the 'cowards' that turned the city into a free for all for one night only.
