Trevor Reeves, director of the House of Reeves furniture store, part of which was destroyed during last year's riots, has talked about effects the riots have had on the business and staff.
Speaking to Daybreak, Mr Reeves, said: "We've learnt a lot about ourselves, we've learnt a lot about our community and we've got ourselves back together.
"Everybody felt this very personally when it happened here. There were many in our shop crying immediately after the riots. When you get that sort of emotion, you get a very positive feeling from people. Everybody wants to come back and make things better."
