Riot scheme not fit for purpose, says ABI


According to the trade body, the Riot (Damages) Act 1886, which enables compensation to be paid by police authorities to victims who suffer loss or damage following a riot, needs to be reviewed and updated to reflect modern society.

The association argued that the current arrangements had led to delays in paying out some compensation to people without insurance and that there was a lack of a consistent approach which meant victims in different areas were being treated differently.
