Riot Clean Up

I wanted to put the South Bank special i had planned to one side for a bit, to highlight some of the heartwarming community spirit London has shown today, in the face of all this mindless violence. Hundreds of people gathered today in Clapham Junction to take back their streets, in a collective community clean up. Armed with brooms and bin bags, the volunteers rallied round local business to help get the community back on its feet. All of this was organised by local girl Heather Taylor, who used twitter to drum up support, to brilliant effect.

Lets hope things can return to some kind of normality soon, that these thugs learn some fucking respect and that all affected find the strength to re-build their livelihoods. Check out Riot Clean Up for details on how you can help...
