London Riots -- Third Night

Global Voices Solana Larsen has compiled a collection of reports, charts/maps and videos from people in the areas: United Kingdom: London Burning (Videos)

Also Adam Gabbatt and Richard Adams are compiling up to the minute coverage for the Guardian: London riots: the third night – live coverage

Also some good Guardian reports that provide context for the riots (or insurrections) that are missing from official statements repeated by other media sources:

Nina Power's "There is a context to London's riots that can't be ignored: Those condemning the events in north London and elsewhere would do well to take a step back and consider the bigger picture."

Alexandra Topping's "Looting 'fuelled by social exclusion': Young looters from poor estates have nothing to lose and no reason to obey social norms, say experts."
