The BBC has announced that it will broadcast a live Question Time special on the London riots.
The one-off programme follows the widespread unrest in the Capital over the past few days, that has now started to spread across the UK.
Riots were localised to Tottenham over the weekend, before spreading to Croydon, Clapham, Peckham and other areas of London.
Widespread disruption has now been reported throughout Birmingham, Liverpool, Salford and Manchester, with looters targetting shops and businesses in the city centres.
Guests are yet to be confirmed for the special programme.
Alex Hudson, a BBC journalist spoke of the edition of Question Time via his Twitter page, posting:
"To all those asking about #bbcqt guests, it'll be a while before they're announced. Nothing confirmed as yet."
Question Time was first broadcast in 1979, as the television equivalent of BBC Radio Four's Any Questions? show.
The one-off special will be shown live on BBC One on 11 August at 10.35pm.
Anyone wishing to apply to be in the audience for the show should visit the BBC Question Time website.
