0241: Police have said that rival gangs are now starting fights at King’s College Hospital after two gang members were admitted with minor wounds.

0237: Effra Road, Brixton, is now clear of crowds, reports Sean Cameron. Situation at Curry’s still fluid – police in the area and lots of looters still walking off with stuff.

0310: Update from the Met Police:

“Police are tonight responding to copycat criminal activity across London and are deploying officers to tackle it.

There has been looting in a number of boroughs in north, east and south London by small and mobile groups. Groups of youths continue to attack police officers and a number of police vehicles have been damaged.

Three officers have been taken to hospital after being hit by a fast moving vehicle at approx 00:45hrs. The officers were in the process of making arrests in Chingford Mount, Waltham Forest, in connection with youths looting a shop. Two officers are believed to have superficial injuries and the other has an injury to his knee.”

0309: More news from Westfield shopping centre: police have erected semi-permanent barricades and deployed armed officers and dogs. What are they expecting there?

I think you called it

BBC is calling it copycat criminal activity

Police have condemned a wave of "copycat criminal activity" across London in a second night of looting and disorder following riots in Tottenham.

if you noted this already, my apologies - I read through but I could have missed it

Ok this goes two ways now very rapidly,

(1 the police do the right thing and suspend the officer without pay and begin to press charges against him for unlawfully killing someone, and not half hearted charges that get lifted when it blows itself out.
this could be the only thing that could give the victims family the power they need when they stand up and ask the rioters to stop what they are doing and let justice do its thing.

2) The police muddle on trying to contain riots that tonight break out in possibly any city with a dissaffected population living at its heart.
The police may try to firefight the situation, they need to stop it before it gets tottally out of control.

Anarchist organisations have been waiting for the match to light it all off, will this be it, will this be the one that goes around the world.....

You can expect to see the government try and move the poor out of the city centers and into the burbs where all they will destroy is there own homes, at some point in the future.

yep everyone should just lie down and continue to accept extra judicial killings as a way of life.
think what you like but if their actions make the police think twice about using deadly force on unarmed civilians, then i appreciate what they are doing.

What else does the government listen to, platitudes and nice formal requests?, get real.

i read earlier in this thread somewhere:

looters are looting form each other.

Thats funny.

When they finish beating up other people they then... beat each other up.

see the pattern forming here...

the next stage of the night we will see them eating each other.

again see the pattern?

it is pretty clear really

the man had a gun and shot at a policeman , the police shot back and killed him .
a gun is not a fashion accessory it has only one purpose and that is to kill .
the police did the right thing.

the riots are just an excuse to rob and loot , they should read the riot act and shoot the looters on sight

Fears of a third night of rioting in London are now spreading. For all the ATS members and their families that live in London, God bless. Stay inside and be safe.

Back to Twitter...

Apparently the riots are spreading to Southgate, Winchmore Hill, Barnet, Mare St, Camden & Willesden tonight. The fire spreads.

Wood Street in Walthamstow has recently been closed off. A big march was due at 3pm but I can't confirm if that took place.

Tottenham Hale retail park shut completely. All shop windows covered with sheets of MDF.

Sirens and helicopters in Lewisham right now.

This has now been confirmed over 200 youths in broomfield park , heading towards palmera green

Sirens in Bethnal Green, plenty of them

My parents have said Southgate is locked down by Police. Shops closed.

London riots: Nick Clegg finally condemns rioters as Theresa May flies back home

... If your government was really operating properly you would have the military on stand by. Idiot.

Most shops in New Barnet have closed early. Sainsburys barricading doors with piles of pallets.

Londons on edge. In hackney the police are everywhere, stores are shut down and sirens rule the air.

I'd like to put an order in for a new iPhone, any of the top ten xbox 360 or PS3 games and a digital camera.

Lets hope the police take it seriously and shoot a few tonight, scum of Britain taking control, why work to get what you want when you can stab, smash and steal it.

And so day 3 begins...

What looks like horse vans heading towards Hackney now

Rioters hit stratford and hackney

Finally the police got their act together in Hackney.

BBC reporter: "here comes hundreds of people - bus attacked"

Live BBC footage, it's all kicking off in Hackney, sounds and looks like it's going to get pretty serious there too

Now looters smashing abandoned bus with planks of wood. Broken glass. Appear to be building a bonfire?

For third day running, sirens sounding along Pentonville Road

Hundreds of young rioters in #Hackney, terrified BBC correspondent describes it as a running street battle

V bad timing: truck stopped on Mare St, Hackney. youths helped themselves to debris from its interior as police lined up nearby

police helicopter is only like 50 feet above the ground flying through the bbc chopper camera, its mental down there.

Wow. The police have charged at the rioters in Hackney. Incredible scenes in broad daylight.

Just seen a group of hooded youths filling bottles with something and running towards the police line #hackney

Huge traffic jam just by Hackney Central. Some trouble obviously going down. Heading in for a closer look

Line of police blocking the road at the junction by the Hackney Empire in a faceoff with some kids

Police line has been pushed up from Railway bridge to junction near Hackney Empire
