Heard quite a few sirens around Elephant, reports of Argos having been looted on OKR

Friends in USA saying they haven't heard anything about it - news blackout.
So... yes, no heavy politics on this thread. We're here to support, inform and reassure in necessary!
We're hearing various bangs in the middle distance now. Hopefully they won't be able to get access to the Shopping Centre but I worry about the businesses round here, and of course anyone who lives above them, thinking of the fire in Tottenham.
Apparently the news blackout in the US is to stop copycat action. They must be really worried.
Had eyewittness info about looting on the Walworth Road. Foot Locker got it and East Street
Flip all happening over the border here in South Bermondsey / Southwark Park Road; haven't ventured up to the Blue but it's all quiet apart from the sirens which are passing through as best I can tell. Shops are shuttered up and a couple have gangs of heavies, but I'm pretty sure they're mates of the owners there for defensive purposes in the event...
