As the London enters another day of rioting, looters and bystanders have taken to the web to arm themselves. Amazon's UK site has seen scary-high spikes in sales of blunt objects over the past 24 hours, including a 50,000% spike in clubs and a more than 35,000% spike among different aluminum baseball bat models.

The products were spotted at the top of the 'Movers & Shakers' tab in the site's Sports & Leisure section, which charts items seeing a remarkably sharp increase in sales.

More than 560 arrests have been made and one citizen has died during the riots, which are now spreading to other areas of Britain.
