Sales of Aluminium Baseball Bats Up 5,000% on Amazon After UK Riots

Aluminium baseball bats aren't the only weapon of defence that's proven popular on Amazon UK—wooden baseball bats are also up by 3,600 per cent; military police batons up by 5,000 per cent and the Zumba DVD workout set is up 342 per cent, which probably isn't related to the UK riots of the last few days.
