RIOTER Troy Clack is behind bars after being brought to justice for his role in Gloucester's night of shame.

Clack, 20, now of Laundry Road in Southampton, was given a total of two years and four months in jail on three separate charges relating to his actions when violence broke out in the city on August 9, 2011.

He was given the same sentence again, to run concurrently, for his part in a nationwide drug ring with seven other defendants too.

They were dealt with at Newport Crown Court yesterday.

It has been more than a year since Clack admitted charges of assaulting a bystander causing actual bodily harm, criminal damage for smashing a shop window and violent disorder.

Clack is the 20th person to have been convicted of an involvement in the violent outbreaks in Gloucester, which occurred amid mass riots in other major UK cities that summer.

    Did this idiot live in (or around) Gloucester at the time of the riots, or did he travel into the city on the day, from Southampton (or wherever else he was living at the time)? If he was a local at the time, I wonder if he then moved to Southampton, in an attempt to disappear? Whatever, he 's now where he belongs, along with his drug-pushing scumbag filth. Shame they cant be dropped into a big deep hole instead of being put up in a nice tax-payer-funded hotel, otherwise known as a prison.

    He would have got less for killing someone with a motor bike, what a disgrace. Yes this idiot deserved to go down but to have the sentence concurrent is a JOKE, so this drug dealer will effectively not have to spend one day inside for his violent offences!
