Sony warehouse burns in London riots
Sony's only warehouse for content products in the UK, situated in North London, caught fire during the London riots.

Sony has announced that deliveries of CDs and DVDs across Britain could be delayed after its only warehouse for content products in the UK, situated in North London, caught fire, according to the BBC.

The three-storey, 20,000 square metre building caught alight during the riots that are plaguing the London's Enfield neighbourhood, following the shooting of a man by police.

"There will likely be some impact on deliveries," Yoko Yasukochi, a spokeswoman with Sony in Tokyo told the BBC.

"We cannot determine the cause of the fire or the extent of the damage yet because it's not possible to enter the building," she said.

The UK has been blighted by the worst riots, looting and arson in decades since Saturday.
