    The chairman of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club has pledged to support the local community in rebuilding the area following Saturday's mass rioting.

    Daniel Levy expressed sadness and concern about the "disruption to local people's lives and the effect on the community as a whole".

    "This is the second time this has happened in our area in recent times," said the Essex-born Jewish businessman, referring to the Broadwater farm riot of 1985.

    Shops and buildings were smashed up and burn to the ground as protesters took to the streets of Tottenham and blamed police for the death of a resident.

    Mr Levy said: "Our hope is that calm and order is restored as soon as possible and that we can now look to rebuild the area and the spirit of the community."

    Mr Levy, who has been the Spurs chairman for a decade, said that the club had already asked Tottenham MP David Lammy and Haringey Council how it could best provide help.

    "The club is committed to supporting its community with help with both the physical clean up of our area and the longer term rebuilding of the community spirit," he said.

    "It is more critical than ever that community, business and political leaders - local and national, public and private – now work closely together to support the regeneration of this area.

    "We shall certainly look to play our part in that."
