A teenager has been jailed for murdering a vulnerable elderlyresident inside her sheltered accommodation.
88-year-old Margery Gilbey was attacked at Sonali Gardens in Shadwell earlier this year.
18-year-old Imran Douglas from Romford pleaded guilty to strangling and stabbing the pensioner before ransacking her room.
Today a judge described it as a wholly gratuitous and callous crime before jailing the teenager for 18 years.
