Saturday 18.45 Stroud Green Road, Finsbury Park

These pictures were taken from the roof of our flat as violence erupted in Finsbury Park. Police gathered outside The White Lion of Mortimer as glass objects were thrown onto the street. The trouble seemed to be caused by football fans who had been drinking all day following the North London Derby.






More police arrive in riot vans....

.....and go back to their vans for riot shields



An injured man walks past

Just another run-of-the-mill, dull derby day then...

...and not even a football shirt in site. I wonder if they were Spurs fans? Can only jump to conclusions as there hasn't been anything in the news.

Aah, how I (don't) miss north London.

Sorry but frankly your Blog on the Football is a load of cobblers.

The awful scene you have captured on your camera is the aftermath of a Police attack on Arsenal fans at the White Lion........There are no Spurs fans around.

Please also delete the injured man pic or at least block out the face of the other man as I don't like having my Picture splashed about the net,especially since the content of you Blog report is erroneous.

Up the Gunners !
