RIVAL gangs armed with knives trashed a Deptford shop as their fighting spilled over from the street outside.

Police were called out to the Mace grocery and off-licence in Deptford High Street at around 7.30pm on February 27 after the dispute between two groups of youths.

Teenagers, who had been fighting outside, entered the store, hurling bottles at one another before fleeing with cash from the till.

When police arrived they receovered a knife from the scene.

A spokeswoman for the Met Police said no arrests had been made but enquiries are continuing.
