Arcades are victims of the riots


Several arcades have been damaged and robbed during the recent violence on Britain’s streets.

In Piccadilly Gardens, an amusement arcade was plundered and machines were overturned in Piccadilly Museums with coins strewn across the carpet.

And the area around the Nag’s Head on Holloway Road  in London saw the Agora Amusement arcade face damage as a pack of ten looters stole two slot machines and cracked windows.

“There were about three staff here last night when that happened,” said James Smith, an assistant at the arcade. “They were all absolutely petrified. One was female and two were male, and they both had no idea what would happen.”
