30 years on from Brixton riots

Thirty years since the Brixton riots and police believe London's transformed since the trouble but more work's needed.

The three days of violence saw more than 300 people injured after frustration with the way police dealt with racial tension.

The MET Police say out of around 1000 officers more than 150 black or ethnic minority officers are now working in the area.

In 1981 there just a handful.
