Working with in-house documentary maker Joe Hallam, I produced two special programmes marking five years since the London riots for BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra's Stories. 

In August 2011, several days of violence, arson and looting brought England to a standstill. Five people died and hundreds were injured. Starting in North London, after the fallout from the death of Mark Duggan, trouble quickly spread across the capital and to communities across the country. Newsnight journalist Secunder Kermani discovers the stories behind the worst riots in a generation.
