London rises from the ashes

If, like us, you've been feeling more than a little downheartened following a third night of rioting and looting yesterday (8 August), take heart from these photos of communities across London coming together to assist with the clean-up efforts. Despite the horrific violence of recent days, local residents in Hackney, Clapham and Ealing were eager to hit the streets armed with brooms and buckets today - some also wore t-shirts saying "looters are scum" and "I love London."

We have included one photo given to us by a Stylist follower on Twitter, with her caption. If you too would like your photos of the clean-up effort to be featured in the gallery, tweet us @StylistMagazine and we will publish them here. To find out how you can get involved in the clean-up efforts, visit the Riot Clean-Up website here.
