London riots destroy Sony’s DADC facility.

Sony DADC fire Enfield. London’s ongoing riots have resulted in the destruction of ’s DADC (Digital Audio Disc Corporation) facility located in Innova Park, Enfield.

The plant is responsible for the manufacturing of CDs, DVDs, UMDs and Blu-Ray disks, and also houses high tech research labs working on emerging optical technology. It should be noted that most Playstation disks are printed at a similar facility based in Austria.

The level of damage isn’t currently known, but this video from Twitter user “shanebaby82″ shows extensive destruction.

Update: A caller to BBC News has confirmed that the fire was started by looters, who fled the scene carrying Sony products.
