Police have appealed for information over a pair of "dangerous" men, after a shop keep was shot in the chest on Halloween. Investigating officer Detective Sergeant Gary Ferguson, of the Met's Flying Squad, said:
These men are dangerous and we need to find them urgently.
Although suspect one tried to cover up, you can see most of his face in the CCTV footage. His face is distinctive. We are sure that someone who knows this man would recognise him from the CCTV. Take a good hard look at his face - do you know him?
Police have released CCTV of the moment two armed robbers tried to hold up the Show Supermarket in Plaistow. When they left empty-handed the shop owner chased them and was shot in the chest at close range.
Police investigating the shooting and stabbing of a 15-year-old boy in Plaistow have arrested a 23-year-old man on suspicion of attempted murder. The man was taken to an East London police station and has been released on bail.
A 15-year-old boy has been shot and stabbed at his home in Plaistow by a gang of masked attackers. Five men forced their way into the property in Grange Road in the early hours of Friday morning. The boy has no gang links and is not believed to be involved in crime.
A 35 year-old man has been jailed for four years for knocking two young women unconscious in unprovoked attacks. Last November, police released this footage of Michael Ayoade punching a 16 year-old to the ground in the High Street in Plaistow.
After he was arrested, police realised he had also attacked a university student, Daniella Montieth, at Plaistow tube station in November 2011. She was knocked unconscious in the ticket hall.
Judge Roger Chapple said they were "vicious, unprovoked attacks on young, lone females".
