I need to find some witnesses who have seen this group in Borough High Street or the alleyways that run off it, before the incident, or afterwards, when five of them ran off down Mermaid Court."

Mayor Boris Johnson has been taking a look at how the regeneration of Elephant and Castle will progress.
The area is undergoing a 15-year renovation project, which will see three thousand new homes being built, with community facilities and central London's largest new park for 70 years.
But there are questions over whether enough of the development is affordable to ordinary Londoners.
Luke Hanrahan reports:
Cabinet Member for Regeneration at Southwark Council Fiona Colley has told ITV London that although there are not many affordable houses as part of a regeneration strategy at Elephant and Castle, there are "many other benefits".
Local residents from Elephant and Castle have said the £3 billion regeneration project in the area set up the London Mayor was "pushing out families" and was "not taking local people into consideration".
