In the summer of 1981, 40 British Cities were rocked by rioting. Toxteth, Liverpool was the most violent.
Britain, 1981. Margaret Thatcher is Prime Minister and tensions are rising in communities around the country.
On a hot summer evening in the L8 area of Liverpool, the arrest of Leroy Cooper, a young black man, ignites a social uprising within an over-policed and under-valued community. The nights that follow are filled with violence, rioting and destruction - a brutal social clash that was dubbed 'The Toxteth Riots' by the media and would damage the city for decades.
