The prosecution of a man accused of burglary during last year’s riots has collapsed due to a lack of evidence.

Deniz Tosun, 28, of New Villas, Baronet Road, Tottenham, was accused of stealing electrical goods from the Electronic Centre in High Road on August 6.

But after a review of police evidence against Mr Tozen by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), the case was discontinued during a hearing at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court on April 27.

A CPS spokesman said it “has a duty to continually review cases,” adding: “Following a further review of this case in light of further evidence from the police we concluded that there was not enough evidence for a realistic prospect of conviction. The case was therefore discontinued.”
