Tottenham shops looted and vandalised

Shops in the Tottenham area of London were looted by rioters following a protest over the fatal shooting of a local man.

Twenty-six officers and three others were hurt in the violence which broke out and fifty-five people arrested during the disorder are being questioned.

Parts of Tottenham are still cordoned off, as what the Met described as "a slow and painstaking" examination of the riot scene is conducted by officers and forensic teams.

Nicola Pearson reports.
