Riots In U.K. lead to travel advisories in many countries as police in riot gear fight to bring control back to the country.

This weeks riots in London and other cities in the United Kingdom led to various countries issuing travel advisories urging great care when traveling in England, especially in the troubled areas which include the major cities of London, Birmingham, Manchester, Nottingham, Liverpool, but also involves smaller communities.

Rioting, fire bombing and looting along with much violence has left Britain shattered and picking up the pieces during the day, with groups from the communities brandishing brushes and shovels to clean up the mess from the night before. Many arrests have been made by the police in various cities.

However, travel advisories have been issued and travelers are urged to take extreme care when traveling in the United Kingdom, to avoid all protests and demonstrations and to pay attention to the media for information about what is happening in the country. The terrorism threat level for the United Kingdom is “severe”, which is the second highest alert level, and it does suggest that an attack is highly likely. Because of this, travel delays are possible as the security measures that are in place are more time-consuming.

Although travel advisories were issued by many countries , horrified by the violence erupting in the United Kingdom, some of those countries have now removed those advisories, as the government takes control of its streets again with heavy police presence. Anyone destined for the United Kingdom should check with their travel agents and embassy for more details on the latest standings of advisories or warnings.
