A mayor has apologised after she said 2011's riots were "the best thing that's happened" in her community for a while.
Sheila Peacock's comments about Tottenham - dubbed the "epicentre" of the riots two years ago - have upset residents who were forced to flee as homes and businesses burnt.
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."
