London riots' impact felt two years on

Two years on from the London riots, some small businesses say they are still waiting for compensation while others are struggling emotionally with what happened.

The riots started in Tottenham in August 2011, following the police shooting of local man Mark Duggan.

More than a thousand people were eventually jailed for the disturbances but it has emerged that 300 people are still wanted by the police.

Niche Mufwankolo, landlord of The Pride of Tottenham; Ch Supt Victor Olisa, borough commander of Tottenham; Steve Moore, riots victim; David Lammy, Labour MP for Tottenham; Chris Lane, former Tottenham town manager and Blanche Dawling, Tottenham Traders Partnership, all talk about how the riots continue to affect them.
