We were transfixed by the news until late last night and again this morning. Rioting was happening in about half the urban centres nearby, but no sign of it in our residential estate. Yesterday morning we were out in Croydon standing right next to the furniture store at Reeves Corner that is now burned to a cinder, not sure I'd go back there so casually today. Especially not after lunchtime. Pretty hard to concentrate on anything else while this is going on.
