Ely bread riots 25 years on: 'Everybody tarred' by unrest

It is 25 years since a dispute between two shopkeepers over the sale of bread sparked riots in Cardiff.

The Ely bread riots saw a general store run by a Pakistan-born shopkeeper on Wilson Road pelted with bricks and rocks on Friday 30 August 1991.

Three nights of unrest followed, with up to 500 people facing off with 175 police officers in riot gear.

In this broadcast from the time, former BBC Wales journalist Tim Hartley reports on the tail end of the disorder.
