I have heard something about Coventry too (I live there) but I cannot get anymore info at the moment.
Birmingham has had some rioting (not far from Coventry for those who dont know)

Seeing as this a thread about unconfirmed trouble

@leicspolice RT @DwayneLCFC: From what I've just heard huge crowds of people gathering in #leicester in the highfields area #riots #looting

I wouldn't worry about any trouble in Leicester. The Police could just send in the Tuilagi brothers who'd sort it out

That is what I heard just couldn't get confirmation on it - I could drive there in 10 minutes but don't want to get caught up in anything...

I'd advise trying to get some pics and driving up but you might get your camera robbed

OK Cheers Dave
Are you local to Coventry also then?
Would go and see but Central 6 only has one road past it, just before the ring road, so if there is looting and buses diverted then I wouldn't be able to get near it it without walking and then may end up amongst it all...
Try explaining that to work in the morning - got caught up in some looting

She's not still working now though? Thought bookies closed about 8ish?
Hope she is OK and gets home safe regardless...

Glad to hear


Just heard from someone on FB who lives near Central 6 - they cannot hear any commotion or activity, police sirens - nothing?
False alarm?
Where did you hear about wolverhampton?

There is a nasty rumour that rioters have hit B'ham childrens Hospital...If that is true I hope the police man-up and sort it
