Riot investigation chief to speak at webinar

The English riots which gripped the nation in August will go under the microscope today as Inside Housing runs a webinar looking into the causes.

Darra Singh, the man charged with heading up the government’s team investigating reasons behind the mass criminality, is one of the speakers at the webinar – which begins at 11.30.


Mr Singh, chair of rights communities and victims panel, is expected to reveal a number of responses from a range of people affected by or who took part in the rioting as well as explaining what he hopes his team will achieve.

He will also take a look back at the riots as they happened and look at the cost to the nation.

Other speakers at the event are Ian Munro, chief executive of New Charter Housing Trust Group, and Julie Fawcett, tenant and director of Stockwell Park Community Trust.

The event will run from 11.30am until 12.30pm on 26 October. To take part you just need access to a computer with an internet connection.
