'I Love Tottenham' scheme to support riot-hit firms

Help

A campaign encouraging people to support local firms has been launched in the part of north London where rioting first broke out in August.

The I Love Tottenham project asks for customers to help boost business and allow the area to recover.

Shops and homes were gutted when fires broke out and there was also looting.

Among those backing the campaign is the former Tottenham captain Gary Mabbutt, who said Spurs' future lay in Tottenham, even though the club wanted to take over the Olympic Stadium in Stratford.
