LONDON - Riots spread to a third British city on Monday night, with Liverpool the latest place to report looting and violence following outbreaks across London and in central Birmingham.

Liverpool police said a small number of vehicles were set on fire and reported some criminal damage.

The riots first erupted in London on Saturday night and were followed by a few pockets on violence on Sunday, but flared up and spread on Monday night when groups of hooded youths looted shops and started fires in neighborhoods across London, and in central Birmingham.
