For more than one hundred and forty years the House of Reeves furniture store was a landmark in south London. On Tuesday night the family run business â?? which had survived two World World Wars, a Great Depression, and a Great Recession – was burnt to the ground by rioters. British Prime Minister David Cameron this morning announced that "the fightback has begun." This includes the painful cleanup at locations such as the House of Reeves store. Mark Thompson joins us from London to talk about a grassroots campaign to help get stores like House of Reeves rebuilt.
