Police 'kettling' under fire as May refuses to rule out water cannon
"Theresa May, the Home Secretary, has refused to rule out the use of water cannon for the first time in Britain if future student demonstrations result in further violence.
"There were renewed demands last night for an urgent rethink of the policing of student protests as the Government admitted that even more severe methods of clamping down on demonstrators could be used. Police have been repeatedly criticised for their use of "kettling" to contain protesters. However, the Home Secretary suggested that tougher measures could be used by police following last week's violent clashes.
"She refused to rule out the use of water cannon, despite previous Scotland Yard investigations which found they were too cumbersome to use during such chaotic events."
