London's Burning
Been pockets of rioting and looting in London (and elsewhere in England). Pure wanton vandalism and theft.

It was sparked off by the death of a black man in Tottenham, shot dead by the police. The following trouble is on the back of that but has nothing to do with that particular incident, there being many white people involved in the violence too, they are gratuitous "copy cat" events.

Happy to say there is no trouble in South Kensington where I am. Not expecting any either.
