Tottenham London, Emergency services are working to restore order in a district of London after demonstrators burned cars and looted shops and buildings in response to the shooting death of a local man by police.
Eight policemen injured, one with a head injury, are being treated in hospital after violence in Tottenham, north London, on Saturday night (local time). The fire in the night, the riots provoked condemnation from the prime minister’s office, David Cameron.
“The riots in Tottenham last night was totally unacceptable,” said a Downing Street spokesman said in a statement. “There is no justification for the assault to the police and the public face, or damage to property. “There is now a police investigation into the disturbances and we should let that process happen.”
Police said Sunday they still had to deal with “isolated pockets of crime in the area of?? Tottenham with a small number of people.”
A spokesman for London Fire Brigade said all fires were under control.
“We’re still at the scene of some of them to moisten and make sure everything is out,” he added.
The chaos that erupted in Tottenham just before sunset on Saturday, followed by a protest over the death of a man aged 29 on Thursday in an apparent exchange of gunfire with police.
The demonstration was a peaceful demonstration outside the police station in Tottenham High Road before two police cars were attacked with petrol bombs and burned.
A double-decker public bus was burnt after the violence spread quickly, with the bands of hooded youths descended on the area.
The situation spirals out of control as hundreds went wild, the establishment of shops and other vehicles in flames.
It was feared that the unrest was fueled by the rapid messages in the media, prompting others to join in.
Central London has seen student and union protests turn ugly in the last 12 months, but this outbreak of unrest is the worst seen for years in the suburbs.
