Charles in visit to scene of riot

The Prince of Wales will return today to a community badly hit by the riots which rocked London and other cities last year.

Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall will visit Croydon, south London, one of the riot-torn areas they visited last year to view the devastation caused by the lawlessness.

They will meet shopkeepers, residents, faith leaders and students to find out how things stand a year later.

Some of the most evocative images of the unrest were of historic furniture shop House of Reeves in Croydon, which was razed by a massive fire, having stood on the site for more than 140 years.
