Off Licence retailers facing financial ruin after riots
Many small independent off licence style retailers could be facing possible financial ruin after being targeted by rioters. shops selling alcohol, cigarettes and designer clothing where targeted during the recent riots across Britain. Unfortunately some independent shop keepers have little or no insurance policies on stock items that have been removed by looters. Police are making substantial progress with hundreds of arrests being made on the people involved. most off licence premises are fitted with excellent CCTV equipment in case of armed robbery or violent incidents this of cause can be used to identify offenders caught in the act.
David Cameron told MPs the riots in cities across England were “criminality pure and simple”, but there were “far too few police” on the streets.
He announced a crackdown on facemasks and a review of curfews during an emergency recall of Parliament.
More than 1,500 arrests have been made since the unrest began on Saturday.
