UK riots: why is London burning? (part 2)

London is experiencing its worst social unrest in almost two decades. Burning cars, widespread looting, and stand-offs between the crowd and the police: it's hard to believe these are scenes taking place in the capital city of one of the world's richest countries. There are also reports of troubles in other cities, including Birmingham, Bristol and Liverpool. Laura Baines and her panel discuss what could be the cause of the riots.

  • Robin BAKER, President of the British conservatives in Paris
  • Claude MORAES, Labour Party MEP for London
  • Tony TRAVERS, Sociologist, professor at the London School of Economics
  • Eric OLANDER, France 24 Digital Platforms Editor
