book rioters jailed for four years
Blackshaw's page, "Smash Down Northwich Town", encouraged people to gather "behind maccies" -- believed to be the McDonald's restaurant in Northwich town centre -- last Tuesday.
Sutcliffe-Keenan's creation, "Let's Have a Riot in Latchford", called for people to riot the following day.
"The sentences passed down today recognise how technology can be abused to incite criminal activity and sends a strong message to potential troublemakers," Phil Thompson, Cheshire Police Assistant Chief Constable, said.
"Anyone who seeks to undermine that will face the full force of the law."
Five people were killed during a four-day frenzy of looting and arson which swept through London and other major English cities.
Prosecutor Martin McRobb said the pages created "significant panic and revulsion" amongst local people.
