For those that don't know, a man was shot dead by police on Thursday in Tottenham, and tensions escalated culminating in riots on Saturday. Link. The unrest seems to be continuing with riots spreading to Brixton and Islington over the weekend. BBC News arereporting demonstrators and violence in more areas right now including Hackney, Lewisham and Peckham. So far over 250 people have been arrested. My fiancee works for the Probation Service and the police told staff in some offices to go home early this afternoon. Good job as there are clashes with police literally outside one of the buildings she works in! I can hear sirens and a helicopter from my house and I could be in one of the trouble spots within 15mins walk. Link for live information here, may expire later.
