      Couldn't agree more with you there APS, quite shocking what I am seeing on the news to be honest in both Birmingham and London I can't believe anyone would do this and the worst part if, it's the public whom are suffering.

      It seems to be spreading over Birmingham now.
      There is a facebook page updating all the time but I wont link to it as some of the language is disgusting.

      Word is that the Fuel Station about half a mile away has been hit but can't confirm this yet.
      Certainly not gonna walk up to find out :D

      Wow! A fuel station? I wouldn't blame you for not wanting to walk down, really hope that isn't the case though. Is it fire related or just damage that you have heard?

      As far as I can tell it's damage rather than fire.
      Can hear the Police coptor flying all around here

      Sounds like it's going to be a restless night for many over there. Hope it doesn't get too bad for you.

      Apparently buses are not entering the City Centre because of the rioting.

      Yeah that seems to be a problem at the moment, fake pictures and stories going round and you never know what to believe until it's shown on the news, does seem like it is going to get bad though, they are urging all football clubs to cancel all football matches in London.

      Just heard on the news that there are reports of rioting in Liverpool, not looking good at all seems to me like facebook pages are the cause of this amongst other things. Yeah that really is too close to comfort APS and the worst part is the police have no control.

      Well i see its spread to Birmingham ,Liverpool and Bristol..Its got nothing to do with that man being shot its just turned into a free for all..
      I was watching sky news yesterday and the race relations man was on and he said "They have had cut backs regarding youth centres they have poor housing and no jobs and he waffled on some more He was asked if a white man had got shot then this would not be happening so he skipped answering that
      Well we are keeping them in food ,housing ,medical and all bills paid and now it looks like we will have to pick the bill up for this carnage as it will hit the tax payer in several ways .Insurance premiums will rise and the shops may very well put prices up .They need to bring back national service and get some of these young people off the streets and give them a purpose.
      The police have a very hard job they are in a no win situation..If they stop and search them its classed as racist yet how can they let people with guns and knives roam the streets so freely.?
      Its got nothing to do with that man being arrested and killed its now just turned into a shoplifters heaven !!

      It all boils down to the fact that if they had brains they would be lethal.

      You can bet your life they didn't touch the job centres and jeopardise getting their money.

      I am glad I live in Glasgow but I have heard that Scottish police are been sent to England and they might bring in the Army to help the police
