It's been a difficult weekend for North Londoners as that riotiong that began in Tottenham High Street on Saturday night has sparked a spate of criminal activity all over London. The noise from sirens and helicopters has been almost constant today, and many residents in the capital are feeling distinctly uneasy.
So far Islington has not seen much in the way of violent scenes, but as reports of spinoff activity takes place in Enfield, Walthamstow, Brixton and the Westfield shopping centre, we are seeing rumours of disturbances in Essex Road this evening as well as reports of looting at the N1 Centre in Angel and at shops along Holloway Road.
Have you seen or heard anything relating to the rioting this evening? Please let us know.
