Homes replace former 'drugs' cafe
Black and White Cafe
A raid on the cafe in St Paul's sparked the 1980 riots
New homes built on the site of a once notorious cafe in the St Pauls area of Bristol are to be unveiled on Monday.

The Black and White cafe in Grosvenor Road was reputed to have been a haven for drug dealers.

A police raid in April 1980 sparked the infamous St Pauls riot.

The cafe was closed in the summer of 2004 under the Anti-Social Behaviour Act and bought by the council under a compulsory purchase order.

The cafe and other houses in the terrace were demolished and replaced by six three-bedroomed family homes built by the Knightstone Housing Association.
