Between 6 and 11 August 2011, thousands of people rioted in several London boroughs and in cities and towns across England.
The resulting chaos generated looting, arson, and mass deployment of police and resulted in the death of five people.
Disturbances began on 6 August after a protest in Tottenham, London, following the death of Mark Duggan, a local man who was shot dead by police on 4 August.
Several violent clashes with police ensued, along with the destruction of police vehicles, a double-decker bus, and many homes and businesses, thus rapidly gaining attention from the media.
Overnight, looting took place in Tottenham Hale retail park and nearby Wood Green.
By 15 August, more than 3,000 arrests had been made across England, with more than 1,000 people issued with criminal charges for various offences related to the riots. An estimated £200 million worth of property damage was incurred, and local economic activity was significantly compromised.The online video website You Tube was soon host to much video footage of the riots, which had been recorded by witnesses and participants.The riots have generated significant ongoing debate among political, social and academic figures about the causes and context in which they happened.
