Russian state media has been ridiculed over claims of no-go 'explosive ethnic neighborhoods' in London.

The article, called Where police fear to Tread was posted on the Sputnik news agency website and highlights Brixton, Peckham and Tottenham.

The agency has links with the Kremlin and the Russian state backed RT news outlet.

  • Brixton described as "one of the most dangerous districts in the city”

  • Peckham described as “troublesome district”

  • Tottenham where "large-scale riots erupted"

The article describes neighbourhoods in three major European cities - London, Paris and Berlin - as “potentially explosive”.
