It moved on to the nearby retail centre In Tottenham Hale that houses stores like Comet, B&Q, Next, Argos, Asda Living, O2 and PC World where looters smashed and grabbed.. A caller into LBC Radio host Nick Margerisson said he saw a woman pull her car up to the PC world, ran in and came out with a trolley full of goods, which she piled into her car and drove off, barely able to see through her back window.

The lawlessness moved on to nearby Wood Green High Road, home to the Wood Green Shopping City mall where they looted shops along the high road. Worst affected were JD Sports, O2, Body Shop, T-Mobile, HMV, Boots and Carphone Warehouse.
