Man arrested over broadwater farm riots murder

Recommended Posts

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said the suspect was held on Friday and released on Tuesday on bail until May

Mr Blakelock, a father of three, was murdered by a machete-wielding gang 20 years ago during riots in Tottenham, north London.

The officer and his colleague, Pc Richard Coombes, were attacked as they tried to protect firefighters as violence spiralled.

The unrest was sparked by the death of Cynthia Jarrett, 49, who collapsed during a police raid on her home.

Winston Silcott, Mark Braithwaite and Engin Raghip were convicted of the killing in 1987 but cleared on appeal.

Five years ago police released images of Mr Blakelock's blood-stained overalls in a bid to provoke witnesses come forward.

Investigators have repeatedly said people in the area have information about the identity of the killers they have not shared with police.

after all these years an arrest is made..
