David Lammy: Understanding The UK Riots (VIDEO INTERVIEW)

In this video interview, MP for Tottenham David Lammy discusses his new book Out Of The Ashes, a response to the summer riots that rocked Britain.

Speaking not just as the political representative but a life-long resident of the area where the events of August began, Lammy puts forward his case for why the riots happened, what they say about our society and what he feels needs to be done now to ensure mass-looting and violence doesn't break out in our streets again.
