Brixton Riots 07/08/2011

Shot this in the early ours of this morning on Effra Road, Brixton. I arrived a bit late to see the full on riot but I did see the tail end of the looters making their escape from Curry's. In the shot above a girl is caught in the beam of a police helicopter as she sits on an upturned rubbish bin. A line of riot police stand guard across the road in the distance. I'm hoping the madness isn't going to continue, but I fear last night was only the beginning.
