The decision whether to apply for a remand in custody, in the case of those charged with public order offences following the disturbances in central London on 26 March 2011, will be taken by the Crown Prosecution Service on a case-by-case basis. Remands in custody will only be sought where grounds under the Bail Act 1976 exist to support such an action.
