Civil Disturbances Throughout Greater London and Urban Areas Across England

Civil Disturbances in Greater London

09 August 2011

Over the past four days there have been a large number of civil disturbances throughout Greater London and the current situation remains fluid. U.S. citizens are reminded of the following general measures to be considered at any time and place:

  • Follow local media reports and be aware of what is going on around you;
  • If you find yourself near any civil unrest, leave;
  • If you see trouble move away from the scene;
  • Don’t engage with those causing disturbance;
  • Do not challenge debate or make unwise comments.  This will only increase your chance of becoming a victim of violence;
  • If you find yourself in trouble and it is an emergency call the police first, only then, if necessary, reach out to the Embassy;
