Why on earth isn't the proper statute up. This is an abysmal summary. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 131.111.243.34 (talkcontribs) 17:48, 6 March 2007

I agree, it is not great. On the other hand, deleting what we have and pasting in large chunks of the Act verbatim is not great either. -- ALoan (Talk) 16:05, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

Cut and paste from Riot[edit]

I have cut the following passage from the article Riot. I think that a comparative discussion of the offences under this Act should go in this article, rather than in the articles on the individual offences. James500 (talk) 02:15, 14 August 2011 (UTC)

If there are fewer than twelve people present, the lesser offence of violent disorder is charged, for which there is a requirement for at least three persons to use or threaten unlawful violence together, and no common purpose is required.
