Between Saturday 6 August and Thursday 11 August 2011, thousands of mostly young males rioted in several London boroughs and in cities and towns across England. The ethnic makeup of the rioters varied in different cities: 76% of those arrested in Manchester were white, while 29% were white and 39% black in London, and the West Midlands was the only area where more than 6% were Asian. The resulting chaos generated looting, arson, and mass deployment of police. The events were also called “BlackBerry riots” because people used mobile devices and social media to organise them.
