London unrest: Tottenham's 'anger' over police shooting

Petrol bombs have been thrown at police and a shop, two patrol cars and a bus set on fire in a disturbance in Tottenham, north London.

The incident began after a protest over the fatal shooting of a young man by police on Thursday turned violent.

About 300 people have gathered outside the police station on the High Road.

Writer and broadcaster, David Akinsanya, says the anger toward the police existed in the community before Thursday's shooting.
