    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     forrestmccoy sent us this photo taken during his flight from London, England, to Mallorca, Spain, on August 9. Originally from Austin, Texas, he and his partner were vacationing in London the night when the first riot broke out in the London borough of Tottenham. He says that night, while having dinner at a restaurant near the hotel where they were staying, 'we literally saw dozens of police vans and cars speeding down with sirens on. At one point, we even saw a car drive past with everyone but the driver hanging out of the windows with drinks in their hands, hollering.'
    - elchueco, CNN iReport producer

    As we were leaving for Mallorca, I was able to capture this concerning image from my window seat.
