Activists demand justice for Grenfell victims at London Fashion Week

Justice for Grenfell

Activists lined the catwalk at the start of London Fashion Week to call for justice for victims of the Grenfell Tower fire.

Bereaved family members and people from the west London community were joined in central London by musician Emeli Sande, and models Adwoa Aboah and Clara Paget, 20 months after the 2017 fire.

Seventy-two models, representing those who died in the tower block blaze, wore t-shirts which asked: "72 dead and still no arrests? How come?"

The t-shirt was designed by local community members to "serve as a reminder of why we continue to campaign as a community."

A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder in connection with a fatal early morning stabbing in Southwark on Sunday.

The victim, who has been formally identified as 39-year-old Dennis Anderson from Lewisham, was pronounced dead at 03:00.

The Met said the attacker had approached Mr Anderson in an off-licence shop on Lordship Lane and a row erupted before Mr Anderson was attacked.

A post-mortem examination held on Tuesday gave the cause of death as an incised wound to the neck, police said.

The Metropolitan Police said on Wednesday evening a 24-year-old man had been arrested on suspicion of murder and taken to a south London police station.

Knife offenders to be tagged on prison release

Met Police

Dozens of knife offenders in London will be tagged with GPS devices upon release from jail, Sadiq Khan has said.

He announced the project on Monday as part of his public health approach to tackle "unacceptably high" levels of violent crime in the city.

Last year in London nearly 80 people were stabbed to death.

The trial will target 100 offenders across the four London boroughs worst hit by knife crime - Lewisham, Lambeth, Croydon and Southwark.

Those deemed most likely to reoffend will have their movements automatically checked against locations of reported crime and matches will be shared with police.

Mr Khan said the causes of violent crime are "extremely complex".

CCTV images of a man suspected of shooting a woman in an east London nightclub on New Year’s Day have been released by detectives.

The man was seen pulling out a gun and approaching another man at Visions Nightclub, on Kingsland Road, Hackney.

There was a struggle and the gun was fired resulting in an "innocent 28-year-old woman" being shot in the leg, according to the Metropolitan Police.

She was taken to hospital and although she has been discharged, she is still receiving medical treatment.

The photos released today show the suspect, who is described as black, aged about 30 and wearing a "distinctive" tattoo on the right side of his neck with the word “God” followed by “Bless”.

"We urgently want to arrest this man and take this weapon off the streets."
