London (City) Riots remembered 5 years on
Five years ago, London rioted, causing the single biggest loss of property and possessions since the blitz. For those of us living close to the capital it was three nights of terror, which went as quickly as it came. Here is a vintage (and somewhat clonky) video from 2011 in London City, created at the same time surrounding areas were under siege by hooligans looting and burning towns. We clearly remember turning our lights out and staying logged into Second Life and other social media as trouble crept towards our RL district.
