Father of four Trevor Ellis paid for his part in the riots with his life.

The 26-year-old was shot in his car on Duppas Hill, Waddon on the night of the riots after an argument over stolen loot escalated.

Handyman Trevor Ellis, from Brixton Hill, was with two other men, Blaze Aitcheson-Daley, 22, and Tyrone Cooper, 26 on the night.

A court case into his two companions in June revealed the pair had both been looting, with CCTV showing Aitcheson-Daley, Ellis’ cousin, entering Cash Converters with an empty rucksack before emerging with a bulging bag.

Cooper went on to blame Ellis for looting goods.

Aitcheson-Daley pleaded guilty to burglary at an earlier hearing and was jailed for 18 months. Cooper pleaded guilty to handling stolen goods and was jailed for 10 months.

Speaking after the sentencing, Detective Sergeant Darren Lovatt said: "They went there by choice during this violent disorder on London's streets. "Most tragically this was an incident where a young man lost his life. Without the looting, there would have been no shooting."
