Riot arsonist sentencing

A man who started a fire at the House of Reeves furniture store in Croydon, which became an iconic image of the August riots, is sentenced later.

A court's heard how 34 year old Gordon Thompson ran riot through the streets that day before setting fire to the 140 year old shop.

The Reeves family say the fire caused "complete and utter confusion and devastation".
