London - Britain's Duke and Duchess of Cambridge showed their support for the victims of recent UK riots at the weekend.

Prince William and Kate Middleton visited Birmingham, central England, on Saturday to speak to the people affected by the outbreak of violence in the city earlier this month.

Some of the victims they spoke to included the parents of the three men - Haroon Jahan and brothers Shazad Ali and Abdul Musavir - who were killed by a hit-and-run driver as they tried to protect local shops from being looted.

A friend told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "The families were pleased William and Kate took the time to come and meet them. It shows they're in touch with ordinary people."

The couple - who married in April - also went on to visit shopkeeper Ajay Bhatia, whose store was looted by a gang of 70 and he lost £20 000 worth of stock.

William told him: "This sort of thing is not acceptable in our society. It was a terrible ordeal."
