With the London riots continuing for yet another day, Apple is taking no chances with its valuable stock. They’ve cleared the shelves completely in some of their iStore outlets in the UK, opting to lock the stock away just in case.

This is what the iStore in Liverpool’s ONE shopping centre looks like on a normal day, when vandals and looters aren’t trawling the streets looking for swag:

Other stores who’ve emptied their shelves include one in Manchester and another in Canterbury, Kent:
