There's so many threads, cant keep track.

I am worried in SE London. DP is working in Croydon. I'd be grateful if anyone can post updates here as they come in, although I'm hoping the police presence will hold trouble off tonight...

My Mum was on Penge High St an hour ago and said there are large groups of youths hanging around there, and in Sainsburys car park. All shops are boarded up.

Hi Norky. I know some shops in West Bromwich have had windows smashed this afternoon.

good idea for a single thread!

North end Rd Fulham
Southsides Wandsworth
Centre Court Wimbledon
Hammersmith Broadway
Olympic Building site

all been evacuated & closed although no signs of trouble - think it is a preventative strategy

Eltham & Bromley also boarded up (preventative also).

DP is on duty tonight (fire brigade)- they are sat waiting in machines and have been asking for updates so any solid info is v gratefully received- they all have families and are worried!
