Tottenham striker Peter Crouch showed his support for the victims of the London riots yesterday.

Crouch visited 89-year-old lifelong fan Aaron Biber’s barbers in Tottenham, damaged in the riots, to show his support and help raise money for it.

Aaron has been in the Tottenham area for 41 years and has built up his businesses in Tottenham High Street over several decades.

But his life was turned upside down on Sunday August 7 when he visited his shop after the previous night’s disturbances in the area. He found the place smashed up, with windows broken and hairdryers looted. Even his kettle had been stolen.

Crouch said: "I wasn’t expecting to get a hair cut but I needed one and was in a barber shop, so I thought ‘why not!?’ Aaron did a great job.

"It was sad to see what had happened to his, and a lot of other people’s businesses and lives, after the recent troubles. But it’s great to see the response so many people have given."
