Burning buildings, wrecked cars, raided shops, youths in hoodies wreaking havoc, and five deaths. These are the lasting images of the London Riots that went on virtually unchecked for four consecutive nights in August 2011, leaving Britain’s leaders and security forces stunned. The events were no less daunting for journalists intent on reporting the events. Singled out as targets, many were attacked for merely carrying a camera. Polis intern Faith Malmer reports on a lecture given as part of our free public Tuesday Media Agenda Talks by Paul Lewis at Polis/LSE on how he covered these extraordinary events in a cutting edge way.
