Following crisis talks over three nights of riots in London, UK Prime Minister David Cameron said that the UK government will do everything necessary to restore order to Britain's streets.

As part of measures the government is taking, Cameron added, by Tuesday night there will be 16,000 police officers on the streets of London. Some officers will be brought in from other areas and all police vacations were canceled.

In addition, Cameron said that he will recall the British Parliament for a day on Thursday to discuss and deal with the three-day riots.
