Periphery just posted on their facebook that a couple of the venues they've been to before got burnt pretty bad. Not good...

I'm gonna have to step away from Twitter and news sites at some point, it's starting to make me really worried and sick. I've got a lot of friends and colleagues in the areas getting hit hardest. I've been reading a nonstop stream of updates for the last like seven hours and I'm starting to freak myself out. Not usually a big news junkie (at least for a journalist) but I can't pull away.

Frankly most of what's on social networks is complete bullshit and the live news broadcasts are crap.

Will update tomorrow.

Right, so...

TRUE
- Almost all of the rioting was not linked to any actual protest or event, it was just opportunist low-level gangs taking the excuse to steal some stuff and have some fun.
- gangs were co-ordinating via Blackberry Messenger and Twitter, but it doesn't seem like it was premeditated, just organising on-the-fly.
- riots broke out in Bristol, Liverpool and Birmingham - just for the sake of joining in
- David Cameron returned early from a holiday to have a crisis meeting this morning and will recall Parliament on Thursday
- The England v Holland football friendly, and some other lower level sporting events, have been cancelled.

NOT TRUE
- London Zoo was attacked and animals escaped
- Manchester had riots
- the Army are being called in

UNKNOWN
- whether or not the Suicidal Tendencies gig on Monday will be cancelled
