London Riots: Charity event is cancelled

An event to raise money for charity has been cancelled because of the community unrest.

The Reiss clothing store was staging a clearance sale at the Old Town Hall in Broadway, Stratford, tomorrow (Thursday August 11) and Friday and Saturday.

The event was to raise funds for the Kids Company charity which works with vulnerable children.

Organisers decided to cancel the event and will fix it for another date.
