SHOPS have been targeted by rioters in Enfield Town, according to a witness in a flat above one of the properties.

BBC reporter Tarah Welsh, who said she was visiting family, said concrete slabs were being thrown through shop windows in the main shopping streets.

She said on Twitter: “Police car wrecked in Enfield - most rioters looked under 16, lots of young girls throwing concrete slabs through shop windows.”

Riot police have forced around 50 people with hoods over their faces along Southbury Road via Queens Street after clashing with them outside Tesco.
