 With a Carnival in Brixton tomorrow there is talk on twitter of this spreading.





Tottenham broke out in riots this evening after a protest of 150 people outside the police station against the police shooting of local man Mark Duggan on Thursday night near the Broadwater Farm estate. The riots went on for some hours and have now moved off the main road into the side streets as locals gather to watch and join in the trouble. The area is now swarming with police vans with riot cops trying to clear the area but general confusion reigns about what is going on. A few shops, a bus and a bank were set alight and talk of some cop cars set alight.

We’re all thinking of you up here in Bristol! Stay safe, stay free, and you know where to come if you need to wait for the heat to die off :)
