The Met Police has offered a reward of £10,000 as they hunt for an 18 year-old who was wrongly released from Wandsworth Prison.
48 year-old Trevor Gibbon has been charged with the murder of Alison Morrison in Harrow yesterday morning. The 45 year-old was fatally stabbed to death near her home in Alexandra Avenue.
The Prison Service has admitted that an 18 year-old who police are hunting for was released in error from Wandsworth Prison. The Met has offered a £10,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest of Jordan Lee Francois. They say he is a risk to the public.
Campaigners from an East London housing estate are claiming victory after a US property firm agreed to sell it to an affordable housing group instead.
Westbrook Partners bought the New Era estate in Hoxton in March and residents feared they would be forced out when rents were put up. So they launched a noisy campaign to keep the estate affordable. With support from the comedian Russell Brand, the group staged demonstrations and even handed in a petition at Downing Street.
Following the campaign, Westbrook Partners have now agreed to sell the estate to an affordable housing group, the Dolphin Square Foundation, who have promised to take residents' earnings into account when they set the rents. Brand took to Twitter to celebrate the news:
One of the Met's helicopters took this photo of the new light installation on the Shard.
The Met Police has appealed for the public's help to find an 18 year-old who is unlawfully at large from prison. Jordan Lee Francois has gone missing despite being on remand for attempted murder. He has links to North London and a £10,000 reward has been offered for information that leads to his arrest.
Police say Francois could present a risk to the public:
