After the Riots

Having made the headlines as a riot hot-spot on Monday 8th August, Hackney’s Clarence Road made reparation for the damage done to businesses and wellbeing with a vibrant show of community spirit.

I wrote about the street tea party a week on from the trouble in the Hackney Citizen.






Four days later I was back in Clarence Road to report the reopening of the Convenience Store, otherwise known as Siva’s shop, 11 days after it was ransacked.
