Looters left severely disappointed in hunt for precious metals in London riots
Covering all the bases
Version of the story for non-Tottenham fans: Rioters in London were forced to flee empty-handed after one failed attempt at looting. A gang smashed its way into Tottenham Hotspur’s office, but left moments later after being unable to locate any silverware worth taking.
Version of the story for Tottenham fans: Rioters in London have moronically smashed up Tottenham’s ticket office. This has prompted childish and factually incorrect suggestions that this was a failed attempt to steal silverware, when anyone with an ounce of common sense knows that Spurs’ splendid trophy collection is not kept in the ticket office.
