I knew it wouldn't be long... Hounslow will probably be next. Frightening stuff- what's going on in this country?!

DP is on the green outside Ealing Film Studios. Cars and possibly shops on fire, no police. I am moving there from sleepy Dorset on Sunday with the DC sad

I have been looking at Twitter for hours and he said it was all rubbish when I told him to go back to where he is staying. Until he started walking back....

BBC News saying Ealing shopping centre on fire now.

PatriciaHolm Mon 08-Aug-11 23:39:55

There is a small tescos in Ealing on fire, and apparently a reasonable police presence, though lots of looting and general mayhem.

mama2plusbump Mon 08-Aug-11 23:41:26

According to Telegraph rolling news:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/crime/8687177/London-riots-live.html

Police have called in air support from Sussex and Surrey. Shops are burning in Clapham and Notting Hill. Cars have been torched in Fulham Broadway. The Ledbury Michelin-star restaurant in Notting Hill was raided and the diners mugged. There are reports on Twitter of people carrying machetes in Notting Hill and Balham.

Followed by descriptions of rioting in Camden, Colliers Wood, Romford... it's all over now.

How many televisions can the muggers need? Should make buying one off ebay v cheap next week.
