Police are bracing themselves for a ‘summer of rage’ against the economic crisis, a senior officer warned today.

Superintendent David Hartshorn, who heads the Metropolitan Police’s public order branch, said he feared there could be ‘mass protest’ at rising unemployment, failing financial institutions and the downturn in the economy.

The officer told The Guardian that ‘known activists’ were planning returns to the streets, and intelligence revealed that they may be able to call on more protesters than normal due to the unprecedented conditions.
