Cars, buildings and a bus torched in Tottenham riots

Petrol bombs have been thrown at police and three patrol cars, a bus and buildings have been set on fire in a disturbance in Tottenham, north London.

The incident began after a protest over the fatal shooting by police of 29-year-old Mark Duggan on Thursday.

Fire crews were initially unable to reach a building due to the disorder but later began tackling the flames.

Correspondent Andy Moore said a BBC TV news crew and satellite truck also came under attack from youths throwing missiles
