London riots: August 7 as it happened
Rolling coverage of the Tottenham riots and looting, which have since spread to Brixton, Enfield, Walthamstow, Wood Green and Chingford.
There has been looting in a number of boroughs in north, east and south London by small and mobile groups. Groups of youths continue to attack police officers and a number of police vehicles have been damaged.
There's got to be a link to the extent that it's the day after and the police are hugely well organised in Tottenham so maybe this was seen as the place to have a second night.
Scotland Yard said "missiles" were thrown at an officer who attempted to intervene between a fight between youths. Sources said that stones and bottles were thrown at police.
Hundreds of youths are arriving in Enfield on foot or by car as locals fear a confrontation with police. Chris January, an Enfield resident and cameraman, said: "It's like a tinderbox. We are just waiting for it to kick off."
• 55 people are in custody after riots in Tottenham overnight, including four who were arrested today.
• Officers from five neighbouring forces have been drafted in to support the Metropolitan Police as they deal with the aftermath.• The IPCC said speculation Mr Duggan was assassinated by police in an execution was "categorically untrue".• Scotland Yard launches Operation Withern, an investigation into the riots.
These people that I have been listening to as they go past are on their mobile phones, calling their friends, saying, 'when are you getting to Enfield?' Clearly an awful lot of people aren't from this borough.
We do have extra resources out tonight on duty across the capital. We are carefully monitoring any intelligence and ensuring we have our resources in the right places. No one wants to see a repeat of the scenes that we witnessed last night in Tottenham.
Outside the Duggan family home, close to the Broadwater Farm Estate, messages with flowers read: “Gang N17 Farm, Uncle Markie. Can’t believe I’m writing this. Heaven’s new angel. Never forgotten. Love you, Sara."
If you have been a victim of crime during the disorder please go to your local police station and let them know, we want to hear from you. Detectives from Operation Withern will then be in touch with you to make sure that the crime is investigated.
I know people are frustrated, they're angry out there at the moment, but I would say please try and hold it down. Please don't make this about my brother's life, he was a good man.
There has been some speculation on social media sites and we are actively posting accurate information to correct this. What we would ask for is anyone who has information about those who committed these offences or anyone intending to, then please let us know and help us to protect your community.
What does this achieve? They can't get away with this, can they? People really don't think. It's stupid, this. They've achieved absolutely nothing. It's a joke.
This was appalling and unacceptable violence which put people's lives and safety at risk and must not be tolerated.
On almost every street corner down the blocked off High Street there are loud discussions among residents about what happened and who is to blame. The list is a long one and the government, the police, David Cameron and local MP David Lammy are all on it.
The rioting in Tottenham last night was utterly unacceptable. There is no justification for the aggression the police and the public faced, or for the damage to property.
What happened here on Thursday night raised huge questions and we need answers. The response to that is not to loot and rob. There are homeless people standing back there.
