Councils have begun a major clean up across London after widespread rioting over the last three days has left buildings in the capital damaged and destroyed.
Contractors are being drafted in to repair and demolish buildings wrecked by vandalism, looting and fires caused by rioting in Tottenham and there will be more work to do following outbreaks, last night, in Hackney, Croydon, Clapham, Ealing, Lewisham and Peckham.
Many buildings have been destroyed by fires most in Tottenham, where rioting began three days ago, but there have also been major blazes in retail areas of Croydon, Clapham, and Woolwich. Sony’s distribution warehouse in Enfield has also been destroyed by fire.
Repairs will also need to be carried out on the Croydon Tram Link in south London where damages to overhead cables has lead to suspension of services.
Outside of the capital there have been reports of rioting across the UK including in Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester, Nottingham and Liverpool.
