Heart-warming moment when Tottenham toddler tweaks a prince's nose

He may be one of our most senior royals, but today one Tottenham toddler just couldn't resist grabbing Prince Charles's nose as he toured the north London borough.

More than two years after it was torn apart by riots, Prince Charles went back to Tottenham to find out how the people living and working there are getting on.

Our Senior Correspondent Ronke Phillips reports.

Charles has visited Tottenham 'more than any other national leader'

The Labour MP for Tottenham, David Lammy, says that Prince Charles has shown real commitment to helping the people of Tottenham.

"The Prince contacted my office the day after the riots and he asked what he could do and whether he could come.

"This has been a real commitment, a sustained commitment, I might say he's been here more than any other national leader and that includes the Prime Minister."

Prince of Wales's fourth visit since 2011 riots

The visit was Prince Charles's fourth since the 2011 riots and a number of his charities and organisations are helping with the borough's regeneration and providing support to young people.

Projects include an enterprise programme, run by the Prince's Trust, which provides training and mentoring for young people wanting to start their own business.

The Prince's Foundation for Building Community has also organised community consultation workshops, on behalf of Haringey Council, to develop ideas to enhance the underused Tottenham Green.

Charles speaks to families whose homes were destroyed

Prince Charles was visiting Tottenham to see how the area had fared since the 2011 riots. He and the Duchess of Cornwall had visited in the immediate aftermath of the riots.

The Prince of Wales viewed the site of the Carpetright building, which had burned down destroying several homes, but which has now been rebuilt.

The dramatic pictures of the Tottenham landmark glowing red hot became a iconic image of the riots.
