Vupplopp? That'll be in soft furnishings

Somehow, I think of Ikea customers as too genteel and image-obsessed for rioting, but the frenzy at the opening of a new store in London must have been scary (and, from hundreds of miles away, several hours later, slightly comical).
Bargain-hunters abandoned their cars in heavy traffic on nearby main roads, then trouble broke out when queue jumpers got into the store ahead of people who'd queued patiently for six hours.  Alarmed staff closed the store, but the queue charged the doors.
The store is now closed indefinitely.

For ****'s sake, people.  It's cupboards and chairs.
