This is what remains of the Carpetright store in Tottenham, north London after Saturday night’s rioting. The building was built for the Cooperative in 1930 and had social housing above the ground floor store.
Below is what it looked like in February.
Lord Harris, Carptright executive chairman, says the company will help those who lived abovve the store.
'My real sympathies are with all those people in the flats above me who are working class – and I don't mean that rudely – that have got nothing. They have only got the clothes they are in. The only thing I can say is that I'm pleased they all got out safely, because they could all have been killed,' he told Radio 4's The World At One.
'I want to try to help them. I have asked my PR company to find out their names and see if we can get in touch with them, meet them and see if I can help in any way – give them money, or help them with clothes. I feel very, very sorry for them.'
