Mother urges witnesses to forget 'street code'

The mother of Jamil Palmer, the 18-year-old who was stabbed to death in a street in Feltham, has asked potential witnesses to come forward and forget their "street code".

Jamil's mother said:

Do the right thing in Jamil's memory. Forget your street code, it is not grassing and it is not cool. Just tell the police what happened and who was involved.

I've lost my son. The hurt that has been caused is unimaginable.

All I ask is that you trust the police and come forward. How would you feel if this happened to your love one?

You have all shown great love, with the flowers and gifts left at the bench, please don't let him down, you were all there with him through life, be there through death, stand by him, your mate, help him rest in peace.

Woman cradles teenager after nature reserve attack

Tara Thornley was walking her son home from school when the victim's friend stopped her and asked for help. Speaking to the Evening Standard she said:

His eyes were open and he was gurgling. He could not speak but I could see how serious the wound was.

I put my hand on his forehead and stroked and kept saying 'stay with me, stay with me'. He stopped breathing at one point which was terrifying but then started again.

The paramedics arrived and I tried to help them I did everything I could.

Plans for new prison in Feltham to be scrutinised

I will be scrutinising very closely any plans for a new prison in Feltham and consulting with local residents. The Government must proceed with a robust feasibility study that clearly identifies the impact on the area including any extra demands on the local council and police force.

This will require a local consultation and I will be asking for details of this from the Ministry of Justice. The consultation should also identify any thoughts on the precise site under consideration, and whether it is on greenbelt land.

Following HM Chief Inspector of Prison's shocking review of Feltham Young Offenders institute published in July, any modernisation of the youth prison estate must respond to their recommendations so that new prisons are fit for purpose, support rehabilitation and the needs of families, and do not have a negative impact on the local community.
