Purdue Student Offers Perspective On London Riots

Last updated on Wednesday, August 10, 2011

(WEST LAFAYETTE) - People in London have been rioting in the city and one Purdue student in England says things have been crazy.

Brooke Wilson is studying in Oxford and says she has never seen anything like this. Wilson says she's received several emails from the university to not go into London and to stay as safe as possible.

She says she understands why the riots have continued for so long because of the fact that there are so many rioters, it could possibly cause a safety issue for police officers.

She says the riots haven't reached Oxford but she's been told that they could so she and her fellow students are being warned to be extra cautious.
