    How tough do we think the police need to be in situations like this?

    Water cannons, rubber bullets, tear gas. Also send in the army if the police can't cope.

    I'm so annoyed that I moved out of Hackney right before this. I might have been able to skip work for DAYS due to TRAUMA.

    On my walk home from work today, all of the shops were shut and the shutters down, helicopters hovering over Victoria Park, was eerie. Just watching on Sky News now literally half a mile from me. I'm ashamed.

    Yep! No sign of anything here yet but it's getting closer. There is literally nobody on the streets, just lots of police sirens and helicopters.

    It'll be a blaze of NYLON :(

    Twitter seems to suggest reports of riots beginning in Manchester too.

    Buildings in Croydon town centre are now on fire. Looks like it could be a busy night for the Met.

    It's all rather worrying - especially how it's kicking off in several places now. I'm just afraid that at some point it might not just be material damage anymore at the rate things are developing.

    Huge fire in Croydon. What is that building on fire? Are they houses?

    Cameron (and Boris Johnson actually) really is committing a bit of a PR DISASTER not being here.

    I really want to form a vigilante group to give those trashing my city a good slap.

    Probably not a good idea, but I really want to do it.

    "It always starts with a DEATH"

    APPARENTLY

    What might "IT" be then?

    Though Boris Johnson has clearly fucked this up by taking so long to return. GOOD. GET RID.

    I'll grab you a Mighty Mouse if Regent Street goes down

    It's getting rather APOCALYPTIC now

    The Met really is up against it. 30,000 of them in TOTAL up against WHO KNOWS HOW MANY "rioters" over a HUGE AREA

    Is looting during a riot a more serious crime than shoplifting (criminal damage aside)? I want the scum locked up.

    If this were Sim City 2000, I'd bulldoze all the homes of the riots and plant trees instead.
