Looters were ferried into Croydon by minibus to cause destruction, we can reveal.Another nail in the coffin of ‘It was all due to deprivation and poverty in their communities’…
In an interview with Acting Borough Commander Jo Oakley, it emerged gangs of rioters were bused in, reportedly by gang leaders.
Still, it wasn’t all bad news:
Trevor Ellis, is 26, of Brixton Hill, and is believed to have come to Croydon to take part in the lawlessness which saw large parts of Croydon looted and destroyed by fire.To keep his appointment in Sammara, perhaps.
Police think the man had travelled to the Croydon area earlier on Monday 8 August in the company of a group of friends.
