Diane Abbott tells The Sun and The Mail to ‘report with respect’, after they accuse her of defending rioters

Diane Abbott has accused The Sun and The Mail of misleading headlines, after they suggested the shadow Home Secretary had defended the London rioters when she called their anger ‘understandable’.

In a message on Twitter, Ms. Abbott said: ‘Today’s Mail Online claims I defended the hurling of petrol bombs at police! I am disgusted’.

‘The Sun follows suit. Any unrest in our communities is serious. Not a ‘click-bait’ game. Report with respect’.

‘The headline suggests I condone violence, but if you read on, they belatedly acknowledge my call for peace’.

These comments come after protests over the death of Rashan Charles, who died while in police custody, turned violent.

Ms Abbott released this statement:

‘The anger and upset at the death of Rashan Charles is understandable’

‘But Rashan’s family have explicitly spoken out against hostile actions. We must respect their wishes and any protests must be peaceful’.
