|150 Volunteers Join Forces To Clear Up Clapham Junction|
Joined by Council staff following last nights riots
Around one hundred and fifty local residents armed with brooms and brushes have volunteered this morning (Tuesday) to help in the clear up following last night’s disturbances in Clapham Junction.
The residents have volunteered their help in the wake of a Twitter campaign calling on locals to help clear up the mess caused by gangs of marauding youths.
The council has also sent dozens of staff to the area to help in the clean up, which will begin as soon as the police lift their cordon and allow the operation to commence.
At the moment much of the area is cordoned off as it is being treated as a crime scene. Forensic investigators are busy gathering evidence to try and identify those responsible for last night's disorder.
