Hell's Grannies are to blame for the riots....

The following is an extract from an old Mython Python sketch about "Hell's Grannies":

A policeman hustles two grannies out of the cinema.
Cut to reporter walking along street.

The extract above is taken with credit from the full transcript of Episode Eight: 'Full Frontal Nudity' (The title is derived from a line spoken in the episode by someone described as a Chartered Accountant: "I would only perform in a scene in which there was full frontal nudity". After which the ubiquitous Colonel announces that he has noticed a tendency for this programme to get rather silly.....)
