Brum only has about 600 public order trained officers on duty. Lots of forces have sent officers to the mass of 16000 to London. Tonight will be worse than last night. Just spent 4 days in Wolves and it seems we drove back just as it was kicking off. Tried to stop at Halfords on the way out but it was closed at 4pm. Obviously all businesses have shut up in preparation. brum police has a good twitter feed birminghamriots2011.tumblr.com has some good info and pics WAY before it gets to the normal media outlets. Stay safe Nuphoria eh? edit: Richer Sounds is being looted as we speak!
