She later added, "Spent the last 3 hours trying to get hold of all my friends in london finally the last one texted me back & is home safe. i need a nap!"

She added, "w/ (with) the greatest of respect the police are not educated enough 2 deal with this kind of destruction so why dont they bring in the bloody army."
Osbourne's mum Sharon also hit Twitter to comment on the violence, writing, "World has gone crazy. What is happening in England. Senseless." And newlywed Lily Allen asked, "Are we on the brink of civil war or something?"
Meanwhile, hip-hop star M.I.A. was stunned to learn her cousin's restaurant and jewellery store in Croydon had been looted during the riots there.
She also took to Twitter to give followers a running commentary and wrote, "A five year old is walking round looting my cousin's shop."
The unrest has prompted Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron to cut short his holiday in Italy and head home for crisis talks.
The riots were prompted by the death of a 29-year-old father-of-four, who was shot by London police on Thursday (04Aug11). Reports suggest the ongoing violence is in part a protest against the British government's welfare cutting programmes.
