Battle over shrine to dead burglar Henry Vincent

  • It was a busy weekend for Toledo Police

Balloons, cards and flowers were removed by supporters of the pensioner, with whom Vincent was involved in a struggle when he broke into the south-east London address on April 4.

Elvina Lee, who said she was Vincent's first cousin, described the people removing the flowers as "scum", and called Osborn-Brooks a "lowlife".

Today the battle to keep the tributes away continued as the flowers have been taken up and promptly torn down no less than four times. "Where can I put them?"

On Monday, the Met Police said 28-year-old Billy Jeeves was wanted in connection with the burglary. "He wasn't a murderer, he wasn't a rapist, they're putting (sic) him as a monster".

Speaking about Mr Osborn-Brooks, she added: "One minute he is in his house and the next his life is turned upside down".

An angry Iain Gordon, who said he was part of the Fair Society group, pulled down the flowers laid by the family of Henry Vincent.

As relatives started to put the memorial back up for a third time, a woman, who said she was Vincent's aunt, pleaded with the public to leave the tributes alone.

One suspect, armed with a screwdriver, forced the home-owner into his kitchen when he discovered them, while his accomplice went upstairs, the force said.

Scotland Yard said it was liaising with Lewisham Council on an "appropriate management of the floral tributes".

There was no immediate confirmation on the origin of the objects or whether they were airplanes or missiles. In a subsequent report, Fars said a third fighter called Mehdi Lotfi Niasar has been killed in the attack.

When asked what he was going to do with the flowers, the man replied: "I'm just going to dump them somewhere. There were 101 bouquets down there", she added.

Flowers being attached to the fence yesterday afternoon. I do not appreciate it.

"If it's a normal person it's different, but he went and burgled a house - it could have been my house".

"The van was found burnt out and destroyed on the evening of Saturday, 7 April in Star Lane, near Hockingdon Lane in Orpington, Kent".

Mr Osborn-Brooks was arrested on suspicion of murder and released on bail, but was told on Friday that no action would be taken, the Metropolitan Police said.

Thousands of pounds has been fundraised online to support the pensioner.

The pensioner had found two men in his 1920s three-bed terraced house in the early hours of last Wednesday morning. It is unclear what implement was used to inflict the fatal blow.

He then fled the property at around 12.45am and collapsed on neighbouring Further Green Road.

Both Vincent and Jeeves were already being sought for questioning by Kent Police following a series of burglaries in Farningham in January.
