Photographs have emerged of convicted arsonist Gordon Thompson, looting in London ahead of the massive Croydon blaze that destroyed 140-year-old furniture store, House of Reeves.
Thompson brazenly posed for a photographer during the crime spree and ended up on the front page of a local newspaper. The 34-year-old was jailed at the Old Bailey and will serve 11-and-a-half-years for arson and burglary.
