Have you or your family been affected by the London riots?

As the country counts the cost of a third night of civil unrest, outbreaks of violence spread from north to south London with Kent Police making 10 arrests in the Medway towns last night.

This YouTube clip taken at the scene of the riots in Woolwich by Mike Jelves, from Jellyfielders, shows scenes similar to those which occurred across London.

It is thought a group of around 15 young men, who are believed to have travelled to the area by train, caused damage by setting several fires and causing vandalism across Chatham, Rainham and Gillingham.

Bromley town centre was also targeted.

Serious disorder in London saw more than 6,000 officers on duty as mob rule took other in Croydon, Clapham, Hackney, Camden, Lewisham, Peckham, Newham, East Ham, Plaistow, Woolwich, Ealing and Colliers Wood, Enfield and Ilford.

Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Nottingham and Bristol also saw violence.
