    1717: BBC 5 live reporter Louise Brierley is in West Bromwich, where three shop windows were smashed in earlier.

    She says police managed to contain the violence quickly and now the crowd has dispersed, although there is still a high police presence around the local pubs.

    This has the feel of some zombie film. Perhaps the yoof have been receiving subliminal messages from a foreign power via facemong and twatter

    ""look into my eyes - have no fear - rape, pillage, burn, murder - go forth in the knowledge that your human rights cannot be infringed if thou are caught by police TAG (well errrr, a bound over to keep the peace at worse kids)""

    Now the rest of the country awaits its fate, pitchforks in hand.

    Oh joy

    Just ******* crack some skulls already! Make a statement that police can now use excessive force, the royally **** over the first 50 rioters they find. And I do mean do it properly, I am happy to accept that deaths shall occur and I really don't care.

    The best way to stop them rioting is to stop them walking.

    Sorry about the size ;)

    Big red circle = my house & ~2 mile radius around it.
    Other dots with numbers on = current tweeted riot incidents.
