Mayor views riot-hit Tottenham's regeneration

Nearly two years after the riots London Mayor Boris Johnson has been in Tottenham to see how the area is being regenerated.

The mayor had promised to spend £28m on rebuilding the north London area following the disturbances in August 2011, but said to date only about £3m had been spent.

BBC London's Karl Mercer also spoke to Mr Johnson and local business owner Jim Blakemore from Bike Works.
