Prince Charles helps London jeweller
Apr 11, 2012, 12:01 GMT
Britain's Prince Charles has helped make a huge 'difference' to the life of a London jeweller who was affected by last year's summer riots.
Stephen Moore owned family-run Paradise Gems on High Road in Tottenham before seeing it burned down in August 2011, and admits he has been much helped by visits from the prince and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
He said: 'I think I made a particular impact on the prince and he has made a lot of difference to my life.
'When I spoke to the prince, he said, 'This is not right,' and got on to the police. Now things have started to happen.'
However he is not expecting the jewellery that was taken during the disorder will ever be returned.
He told the Haringey Independent newspaper: 'I lost hope on finding the jewellery after the first month, so I don't think it will be found eight months later.
'It's good though that the police are finally trying to get on with the investigation.'
Stephen, 57, has been unable to find work since the riots, which caused the destruction of businesses across the UK.
