In an interview for a documentary, the mayor of Haringey - which includes Tottenham - said:
"The second riots that we've just had was the best thing that's happened in Tottenham for a while.
"My reason for saying that is all of a sudden the government is now starting to pump money into Tottenham.
"Because Haringey is an out-of-London borough, so we don't get as much money as Islington or Hackney."
Author Polly Courtney claims that whilst charities have done an incredible job at helping young people, if there is 'no significant shift in Government priorities and spending', more riots can only be a matter of time.

Since August 2011, the situation for many young people has got worse, not better. Unemployment among 16 to 24-year-olds is still at close to 1 million. That is 20% of our young people out of work. More than half of councils have been forced to cut their spending on children's services.
I think giving young people opportunities is the key thing that we need to focus on.
A repeat of the 2011 riots in the capital is inevitable, according to a new book. Author Polly Courtney has spoken to young people across London for a new book and claims that with one in five young people out of work the situation they face is even worse than two years ago.
Polly Courtney said more unrest is "only a matter of time" unless the Government shifts its priorities to improve conditions for young adults.
It's two years since the police shooting of Mark Duggan in Tottenham, north London, that sparked a tidal wave of rioting, arson and looting that spread across parts of the UK.
Courtney interviewed young people in areas hit by the unrest as research for her novel, Feral Youth.

Mr Reed said he also believes the Government abandoned victims of the riots once the media spotlight had disappeared from those affected areas.
He told a Commons adjournment debate on the issue tonight: "It's almost two years now since the riots hit Croydon.

The Met Police is to pay substantial undisclosed damages to a 'Good Samaritan' who helped vulnerable people caught up in the London riots in 2011 whose photo was wrongly used in 'wanted' posters.
London's High Court heard Leslie Austin, who works in housing services in the east London borough of Hackney was commended and thanked by individual police officers throughout the night of 8th August 2011.
The help Mr Austin gave to others included rescuing people who appeared to be trapped in a building close to a car which had been set alight, escorted a distressed elderly woman away from the riots home safely and removed debris from around a bus, enabling the driver to continue the journey.
So 'Good Samaritan' who has carried out much volunteer work within the community was shocked when he found his photo on a poster with the words 'Operation Withern Identity Sought' given by police to local businesses for display.

Of the 201 cases passed to the UK Border Agency (UKBA), only 15 have been kicked out the country, showed figures released to the Daily Mail following a Freedom of Information request.

"Many of those convicted of involvement in last summer's riots are still behind bars - that's where they belong. We are pursuing deportation in scores of cases and wherever possible, when they have paid their debt to society, we will remove them from the UK."
