This morning, five British cities awoke to the charred debris of a third night of major rioting.

Hundreds were arrested after the seemingly coordinated violence, including major incidents of looting and arson.

Inside Story discusses with guests: Diane Abbott, a Labour member of parliament for Hackney in London, and Steve Parker, a security and terrorism expert.
