LONDON, ENGLAND, UK (AUGUST 9, 2011) ITN/BBC HELICOPTER  Sony's Enfield factory in north London was still burning on Tuesday (August 9) morning as fire crews attempted to control the blaze which has ravaged the building, while other crews across the city battle similar fires.


Smoke from the large structure could be seen across the city's skyline.

Fire crews in Clapham and Croydon were fighting fires in businesses and residences that had burnt for most of the night, after a third night of rioting that has seen Prime Minister David Cameron announce an increase of 10,000 police officers after cutting short his holiday.
