Family business set to rebuild after UK riots

Croydon furniture store, which had traded for 150 years, prepares for new life after being torched during violence.

    One of the south London businesses facing a clean up after rioters did massive damage to it during widespread unrest earlier this month is the Reeves furniture store in Croydon.

    The business and premises have been run by one family for five generations, but it was reduced to ashes at the height of the unrest, sparked by the police killing of Mark Duggan in the north of the city.

    Al Jazeera's Barnaby Phillips reports from Croyden.
