All quiet on the south-eastern front

A time-lapse video shot over Tottenham in the early hours of Sunday. Thankfully, despite trouble in Brixton last night, and rumours of problems in Lewisham, south-east London was calm. Over the next few nights, though, I think we’ll all be worrying if we hear a rush of police sirens. I passed through Woolwich last night, and it seemed the same as ever. Kids hanging around, kids on bikes, one even said hello. The rudeness!!/tosPOPtarts/status/100340059819085824!/MissGeriCapri/status/100182890335305729!/TheRealSlimSeyi/status/99975844340047872!/BethSkyWalks/status/100532471900278784

Damn these kids and their social networks. Hopefully things will stay quiet…

UPDATE 3:15PM According to Harringay Online, Haringey Council is accepting donations of clothes, bedding and toys for families made homeless in Tottenham at Apex House, 820 Seven Sisters Road N15.
