Video of cars on fire as riots rage in Birmingham, Liverpool

Thousands of police officers flooded Britain's streets on Tuesday in a bid to end the country's worst rioting in a generation, as nervous shopkeepers closed early and some residents stood guard to protect their neighbourhoods.

Some 250 people were arrested after two days of violence in Birmingham - where police were investigating reports of shots fired in a restive inner-city neighbourhood. In the northern city of Liverpool, about 200 youths hurled missiles at police and firefighters in a second night of unrest, and the area's police force reported 44 arrests.

There also were minor clashes for the first time in the central and western England locations of Leicester, Wolverhampton, West Bromwich, Bristol, and the western city of Gloucester- where police and firefighters tackled a blaze and disturbance in the city's Brunswick district.
