Rioting has spread across London on a third night of violence, with unrest flaring up in other English cities. An extra 1,700 police officers were deployed in London, where shops were looted and buildings were set alight.

Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester and Bristol also experienced disturbance.

The prime minister is returning early from holiday to discuss the unrest, which first flared on Saturday after a peaceful protest in Tottenham over the fatal shooting of a man by police.

At least 334 people have been arrested and 69 charged following the riots across London over the past three days, Scotland Yard has said.

Three people were arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of attempted murder after a police officer was injured by a car in Brent, north west London, while trying to stop suspected looters. (BBC)

    TMA Tuesday, 09 August 2011 09:01 AM

    Seeing lot of immature statements from ppl who don't know what thisis all ab't. The story so far: A black guy with a GUN was shot dead by the cops who tried 2 arrest him. So now protests by black ppl broke out. Don't have 2 celebrate yet, it's not the British version of the Collapse of Communism

    Ryan Tuesday, 09 August 2011 09:08 AM

    Cynic Tuesday, 09 August 2011 11:00 AM

    The Bristish have sown the wind and reaped a whirlwind. Hope this will be wake up call to stop mollycoddling LTTE terrorist supporters.

    Ben Tuesday, 09 August 2011 11:01 AM

    Yeah buddy but what happened after? We all like to know!

    kyle Tuesday, 09 August 2011 12:09 PM

    July riots were where people of one race were slaughtered. How can u even compare the 2?

    Kosala Tuesday, 09 August 2011 06:22 AM

    Y have those people being arrested they are oppressed freedom fighters return the loot and give them more money to do the same please do so immediately if not UN , HRW will be forced to free them . Start a negotiated settlement process . Give 2/3 of the country . Will work work great wonders .

    Ben Tuesday, 09 August 2011 06:33 AM

    It's not the same feeling when things happen in your own backyard, right? Oh well...

    Upul Tuesday, 09 August 2011 06:36 AM

    Pay back time for all the things done against Sri Lanka.
    Time to request from SL it's anit-rioting police (STF) to kerb these violance. Our guys will do it with one bullet.

    Jhone Tuesday, 09 August 2011 06:43 AM

    see the difference at katunayake free trade zone police damaged the property not the people (workers) looting never happened even after young man died... shame on SL police and UK citizens... both same attitude

    Dee Tuesday, 09 August 2011 06:53 AM

    MIA's next hit song, "London is burningn down" ,

    PKR Tuesday, 09 August 2011 06:53 AM

    We demand immediate inquiry by UN on HR violation of UK government.
    We should urge asian countries to boycott 2012 London Olympics due to HR violations by UK government.

    Nimal Tuesday, 09 August 2011 07:21 AM

    Channel 4 where are you?

    Rupasinghe Tuesday, 09 August 2011 07:17 AM

    Good lesson for promoting violance in other countires. Why arrest them ? Cry for the HR of the protesters.

    rif Tuesday, 09 August 2011 07:30 AM

    Dont blame the all UK citizens, some criminal thugs are doing it
    Thugs don't have borders. we should remember 1983.

    MMC Tuesday, 09 August 2011 07:24 AM

    Don’t forget to burn down Channel 4.

    Konde Bendapucheenaa Tuesday, 09 August 2011 07:31 AM

    mlilbands where are you

    Ranjith. BG Tuesday, 09 August 2011 07:34 AM

    Jhone. Have you seen the situation of katunayaka police station before police fire workers. After damege done to police station and auslt to the police officers police in action. JVP must take responsiblity for death of worker not the police.

    Joyed Tuesday, 09 August 2011 07:42 AM

    Impose a travel advisory lie how they do to us...

    S.Dilruk Tuesday, 09 August 2011 07:46 AM

    Britz are the champions of HR. Freedom of expression is maximum as C4 can air anything they want and also no one can question or investigate. So why the hell this Scotland yard police arrested many protesters. It must be allowed fully free.

    Vishva Wednesday, 10 August 2011 06:47 AM

    Cant.. even not Aranthalawa (towards Sinhala) and Kathankudi (towards Muslims) massacars done by Tamil tigers compared with this.. UK was cheering all with their own agenda.. now of course they should feel real pain, thats the point.. We should not wish to happen this anywhere

    Bumba Tuesday, 09 August 2011 08:09 AM

    A typical comment of one of these patriot wearing blinks. Wake up to reality.

    Sam Wednesday, 10 August 2011 06:59 AM

    Kyle, When talking July incident, no one talks about 13 soliders killed brutally.. They were human beings too! So, its not one side slaughtered.!

    Konde Bendapucheenaa Tuesday, 09 August 2011 08:18 AM

    Now we must wait Postponement 2012 Olympic games,

    Asiri Tuesday, 09 August 2011 08:29 AM

    Wara Tuesday, 09 August 2011 08:31 AM

    Jayson Perera Tuesday, 09 August 2011 08:31 AM
