Sony warehouse set ablaze during London riots – Likely “impact on deliveries”
Sony’s major warehouse in Enfield has been destroyed by flames during the ongoing London riots.
The 3-storey UK distribution facility was assaulted in yet another senseless act to snowball from the initial outbreak in Tottenham, making its way to North London the Sony centre was wiped out in a blaze which has so far required around 40 fire-fighters to tackle.
The Enfield warehouse is said to distribute Sony CDs and the company’s Tokyo HQ has spoken out on the incident stating “There will likely be some impact on deliveries”, adding that fortunately no staff were harmed but the extent of the damage is undetermined as it’s not yet safe to enter the remains of the 20,000 square metre building, which is also said to home the record label belonging to a Radio One DJ.
Erupting from a “peaceful protest” in Tottenham, violence and destruction has spilled from London and has affected Birmingham, Nottingham, Liverpool and Bristol.
Members of the public have been united across the online social networks to help the “clean-up” and to identify those involved in the savage behaviour.
