We Did Music – A collection of British Hip Hop MCs and producers.
My family whom I am staying with at the moment live in South Ealing. When I got back home around 11pm it became increasingly clear that the rioting had progressed to Ealing Broadway. Rumours of buildings being set ablaze and cars being smashed in started on Twitter and on BBC and Sky News.
My mum and I stayed up watching the news till late. At around 12.30am some kids actually ran down my road and started throwing rubbish bags around on the streets. My dad called us up to the top floor and we saw smoke bellowing from the Ealing Broadway direction – you can just see it as the dark smoke in this picture:
As the BBC and Sky had strarted recylcing footage on the riots and there didn’t seem to be any more actual news available, I went to bed around 1am, to wake up news reports of small business owners who I actually know being interviewed about their shop windows being smashed. It seems most of the damage is around Ealing studios, Bond Street, Haven Green and West Ealing.
There didn’t seem to be much information online about how hard Ealing was hit, so I decided to take some pictures to show both Ealing and non Ealing types what the hell is actually going on!
Aracadia Centre, Ealing Broadway – apparently all the shops inside were looted. Traffic cone still lodged in the window!
Burnt out cars opposite Ealing Studios:
The Walpole, South Ealing – windows smashed in:
Eatalian’s near Disraeli Rd – windows smashed in:
87 bus windows smashed in and being towed away near Bond Street
Corner Shop near Bond Street – first floor windows smashed in, second floor burnt:
Bottom of Bond Street/Ealing Green:
Chinese takeaway on Ealing Green – Sky News reporting out front:
Electrical shop on Bond Street – the shop front was still smashed in, not cordoned off and all the stock at the front was still there for the taking:
Haven Green near Ealing Broadway station seemed to be the worst hit in the area – most shop fronts completely smashed, some shops closed, some shops staying open (like the hairdressers who had no front window!):
A black car was pulled up in the middle of the pavement with front and back windows smashed in. Strangely there was no police at all in this particular area:
Scary stuff! Let’s hope this is the end of it and it doesn’t continue tonight!
I was getting pissed off with the way WordPress edits pictures so I have given up (pretty much) and now post mostly on tumblr.

This is incredible – get ready for your mind to be blown:
