Boris Johnson and Nick Clegg were both heckled on Tuesday as they visited riot-hit areas in London and Birmingham.
London Mayor Johnson was told by crowds to "resign" in Clapham junction, and asked "why are you here now.. it's too late." A resident asked him where the police were last night, telling him: "No one was here to defend me".
In Birmingham, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg was booed by local residents and told "don't you think you're a bit too late".
