LONDON, (NBC)- Londoners woke up this morning to a heavy police presence on their streets following yet another night of violent riots.

The wave of violence hitting the British capital spread overnight to three other major British cities.

Police are struggling to contain the country's worst unrest since race riots hit the capital in the 1980s.

The spreading disorder has some top officials calling for the government to bring in the military.

In London, groups of young people went on a rampage for a third straight night, setting buildings, vehicles, and garbage cans on fire.

Several stores were also looted.
