Crouch visited 89-year-old lifelong fan Aaron Biberâ€™s barbers in Tottenham, damaged in the riots, to show his support and help raise money for it.
But his life was turned upside down on Sunday August 7 when he visited his shop after the previous nightâ€™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 wasnâ€™t expecting to get a hair cut but I needed one and was in a barber shop, so I thought â€˜why not!?â€™ Aaron did a great job.
"It was sad to see what had happened to his, and a lot of other peopleâ€™s businesses and lives, after the recent troubles. But itâ€™s great to see the response so many people have given."
