POLICE have confirmed they have arrested rioters who attacked officers and looted shops in Enfield Town.

The Met confirmed that it had made “several arrests”, while pictures posted on Twitter appeared to show hooded youngsters behind led away by police.

Unconfirmed reports suggest a van and a car have been set on fire, but the Enfield Independent has seen no evidence to support this.

The battleground seems to have moved towards the retail park on the junction between Southbury Road and Great Cambridge Road.
