Images are beginning to surface through throughout the United Kingdom indicating that Apple has removed all of their inventory from a number of UK stores in response to the riots and looting occurring there over the past few days.
The Apple Store Liverpool ONE (above) has already emptied its storefront of all products, and reports have suggested that the Meadowhall store in Sheffield and the Apple Stor Cabot Circus in Bristol have also been cleared of all stock.
Even Apple Resellers, such as the one pictured above in Kanterbury, Kent are reportedly taking these admittedly strong measures, removing or at least concealing any items of value within their stores in an effort to prevent their business from being looted.
Here’s another shot of the Manchester Arndale Apple Store after clearing its inventory. This is certainly terrible news for the UK and for the world as today marks the 4th day of rioting across the United Kingdom.
