2 men have been put in jail for violent disorder after trouble from the London Riots spread into Bletchley.

19 year old Jake Ashby of Kinloch Place in Milton Keynes was sentenced to 16 months while 25 year old Paul Hanley from Peartree Bridge was given 15 months.

Both were part of a group of about 20 who took part in disorder in Bletchley on the 9th August last year.

12 others have already been given jail sentences for their part in the trouble.mugshot riots

Det Insp Kelly Glister said:

“These men, along with the others who took part in the disorder, felt they were above the law on the night of 9 August.

“The fact they were both arrested that night, but initially pleaded not guilty to the charges against them, shows they continued to feel this way.

“My team of detectives have spent a large amount of time building a case against them and the weight of evidence was substantial, as demonstrated by the fact that Ashby eventually pleaded guilty and the jury took just an hour to find Hanley guilty.

“They intimidated innocent people and attacked businesses and I am pleased that the courts have recognised the seriousness of what took place that night.

“I am pleased we are now reaching the conclusion of our investigation into this disorder and I hope the people of Milton Keynes and Bletchley are satisfied that justice has been done.”

One youth, aged 17, is still due to appear before court charged with the offences.
