House of Reeves: 5 years since the riots

One of the most powerful images from the London Riots of 2011 was that of the House of Reeves furniture shop in Croydon being burnt to the ground.

The store had been run from the same building, by the same family, for almost 150 years.

The fire almost forced them to close down, but five years on they are back in business, and Trevor Reeves tells us things are better than ever.
