Riot police attempt to calm a riot in the London borough of Hackney. London saw the beginnings of riots on Saturday evening, after a peaceful protest in response to the shooting by police of Mark Duggan during an attempted arrest, escalated into violence. By the third night of violence, rioting and looting had spread to many areas of the capital and to other cities around the country.
