Following the Croydon shooting and murder of Trevor Ellis who was shot dead in Duppas Hill Road and whose death has led to arrests in Brixton Hill, South London, after the riots that rocked the capital London.
In what was the first known death of the Riots, police have been working round the clock to identify and arrest those responsible for the murder of Trevor Ellis, who suffered a fatal shot to the head in Croydon during the riots.
The two men who have now been arrested on suspicion of the murder of Trevor Ellis have not been named.
The 26 year old who was a father of four children, was savagely murdered after a car chase, and became the riots first fatality, though sadly not the last casualty. By the end of the London and England riots at least 5 people had been murdered, and further deaths may still occur as a direct result of the riots.
Mr Ellis had suffered the gunshot wound to the head in Croydon, south London, on Monday night 08/08/2011. He died the next day from his injuries.
Scotland Yard have confirmed that one of the suspected killers, a 26 year old man, has been arrested in Mitcham, south London yesterday. Police were supported by armed officers from CO19, and the man remains in custody at a south London police station, where he is being questioned.
A 24 year old was also arrested in Brighton, and he has been bailed to return on 12 September, pending further police inquiries.
A Scotland Yard spokesperson has said that initial inquiries have suggested Mr Ellis, of Brixton Hill, south London, had travelled to Croydon with friends to loot.
At some point the group Mr Ellis was with had become involved in an altercation with a group of approximately nine individuals, and it is thought that words were exchanged, and possibly some minor violence.
The altercation then culminated in a high speed vehicle pursuit which involved three vehicles which passed into Duppas Hill Road, Croydon, where the victim was shot, receiving a serious head injury, which proved fatal.
Detectives are now appealing for witnesses to the pursuit which involved a dark estate car, a silver hatchback and a dark hatchback, in which Mr Ellis was one of the passengers.
It should be made clear that at this time the full details of the case are not known, and exactly what happened may not be known by police for some time, while it is being investigated.
Shootings on members of the general public are rare in London, although not unheard of. Knife and Violent crime is a definite problem, and David Cameron has recently accepted that there is a serious Gang Problem in the capital, and infact around the UK.
Because of all the violence, killings, rioting and general disorder David Cameron has appointed Bill Bratton, a tough U.S supercop to advise him on controlling crime in the UK. THe streets of the UK have now calmed a great deal over the past couple of days, and the worst of the mayhem appear to be behind us.
09/08/2011 12:50 hrs – Another night of violence and mayhem seems to be set after reports in Hackney suggest that business’ are shutting up and have been told to get out ASAP by the local Bill as youths are starting to congregate at Hackney Wick Station.
09/08/2011 Morning – London has suffered yet another night of brutal violence, looting, burglaries, and other crimes on Monday night, with unrest starting in Hackney during the afternoon, and escalating into a massing of hundreds of rioters. The second shooting of the unrest has happened, in the Croydon shooting a man has been killed in a car.
The unrest quickly spread to areas such as Peckham, Croydon and Clapham Junction, which was badly affected and suffered extensive damage. At least 14 civilians have been injured, and many Police officers.
This comes as Bristol Birmingham and Liverpool are suffering riots. The London anarchy looks set to continue into a fourth night.
Looters and Anarchists have been smashing up businesses and taking whatever they can get their hands on, jewels, high value electrical items and clothing are just a few items which have been looted. Banks have been broken into.
More arson and properties have been set on fire through the night. Residents were reported to be fighting Anarchists as they tried to defend their property from vandals.
This violence has been met with widespread disbelief, anger, and a commitment to fight back against the mayhem by the Police and professional serviced. Over 16,000 Police will be on the streets of London tonight after being drafted in from around the UK.
Londoners are worried as the police and politicians struggle to bring order to the capital’s streets, which have been in disorder for three consecutive nights.
During Monday night there were reports of resistance to the mayhem from locals, and small pockets of resistance to the violence emerged in communities over London. One report showed Turkish shop keepers defending their businesses by force, and then chasing off the rioters on Kingsland High Street in east London, which was badly hit by looting and arson.
The London Riots are now beyond a joke, and someone will die unless order can be restored. Many black and white youths, violent gangs and other criminals have made an attack on police in Hackney and in Peckham fires have been started. There was one particularly nasty attack on a member of the public by a group of black youths in Hackney.
It is truly a multi cultural uprising with youths and men of all ages nationalities and colours. All criminals, though what has caused them to do this remains to be seen, there are many theories.
Police stop and search tactics are said to of sparked todays riots.
In Enfield there is looting and Brixton is also rebelling. There has been robbery in Walthamstow and mass destruction across the capital. Protect yourself stay safe, our thoughts are with London.
The madness needs to stop.
This rioting is out of hand now… to begin with I could even joke about a bit of looting, no one was killed, some minor injuries, no serious harm done, now I just feel sick and disgusted that people are doing this.
Some have said it is black gangs, that is true, but there are many youths and elders doing this from white black and even now asian communities, no one part of the wider community is to blame.
I think the government now need to declare an emergency and get a civilian force down there now to deal with the mess. Citizens must be encouraged in future to form stronger neighbourhood watch schemes, to tackle problems in their area.
The government need to act now and support the Police, the politicians need to make decisions, which the Police cannot. Maybe the army needs to be sent in also. Numbers are needed at the moment.
I dont like to say it but home owners you are fucked if you live in London. I feel sorry for residents.
Barracade yourself inside, start playing baseball. I feel for everyone in London tonight. Bastards that is all I can say. The rioting bastards.
Sometimes I think citizens need guns, but then I think straight and know its wrong. It is just sad when a man cannot protect himself and his family.
If i was in London now I would want to be with my friends, strength in numbers. Someone will die tonight I can see it.
It is mayhem. London needs closing down on the streets, and people need advice, real advice, from professionals. The Government need to take action, and the streets need to be safe.
A 23 year old man was arrested and later bailed in connection with a stabbing in East Sheen, a suburb of London, England, in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, SW14.
The man is said to be from the Roehampton area and was arrested on Tuesday, July 5, and has since been released on police bail until August 10.
This is the latest in a series of crimes in the East Sheen area. To be fair the area has a massive problem with crime and violence, though this is not to say that its not a strong community.
Unrelated stabbing video
The arrest was made by police in relation to a stabbing in Grosvenor Gardens on Saturday July 2. The stabbing was not fatal, though the man is in a serious condition.
The 20 year old victim was taken to a local hospital following the incident and his condition is now described as stable.
Witnesses said that the man was assaulted at about 23:20 hrs on Saturday, July 2, and that the police attended the scene with members of London Ambulance service. The case is being dealt with by Twickenham CID.
Another possible gang murder in London where daily turf wars between rival gangs led to another Stabbing and London Police report the death of young man Andrew Jaipaul in Holloway, North London.
A young boy has been arrested over one of the recent London street stabbing instances. The boy was arrested on Saturday, 2 July 2011.
Police are set to return to the scene of the crime where a 21 year old man was murdered in a fatal stabbing and are set to appeal for information exactly a week after his death. It is believed that one of Londons many gangs carried out the attack after the man may of been mistaken for a rival gang member.
Officers now believe that Andrew Jaipaul had been attacked by a group of up to 20 youths in the Holloway area, north London, late last Sunday night.
Paramedics were called but he died at the scene after receiving emergency treatment. It is thought that the medics were unable to stop the bleeding from multiple stab and slash wounds. There was extensive blunt trauma caused in the attack also.
After investigations a 13 year old boy arrested on suspicion of murder and has now been released on bail until August, so it is possible that the police do not have enough evidence to charge him.
This stabbing comes after the fatal stabbing of Dawn McKenzie in Scotland recently, an attack also carried out by a young man of 13. It seems that a knife culture has developed amongst the young in many areas, and although much good work is being done to tackle the problems, more still can be done.
Two 17 year old males who were also arrested on Friday have also been bailed. Police are still searching for other members of the gang. You Tube already has a number of videos about the murder.
The victim Andrew Jaipaul was just 21 and from Finsbury Park, north London had been attacked near Andover House, Andover Road. A later post mortem examination revealed he died of multiple stab wounds, blunt trauma, and slash wounds to vital arteries.
Scotland Yard officers are planning to attend the scence from 9pm to midnight on Sunday to speak to reassure local residents and make a fresh appeal for information.
Police say they are keeping an open mind over the motive of the attack, and are still investigating both the victim and possible connections with his killers. Another possibility is that it was a drug deal gone wrong. There is still no obvious reason why Jaipaul would be in Holloway.
It is understood that Jaipaul may have links with the London music scene and his friends are said to be devestated at the loss of a bright talent.
This is the latest in a number of stabbings and violent crime in the London area and Mayor Boris Johnson had been quoted before saying that Londoners should wear body armour, stab vests, and cut resistant clothing as it was a good way to protect yourself from a terror attack. Boris himself is said to wear a stab vest on occasion.
A number of Politicians after the scandal of expenses purchased body armour to protect themselves incase any irate members of the public attacked them and there have been attacks on MP’s which it totally wrong. They deserve to be tried in a court of law and the jailed MP’s can serve their time and learn.
France has supplied heavy guns and rifles with ammunition to Berber tribesmen so they can defend themselves from forces loyal to Gaddafi, who is not dead as has been previously reported. A number of rebels are advancing on Tripoli and the city is heavily defended, and dug in after weeks of bombardment.
20/10/2011 – After a long war Gaddafi was captured and possibly executed in Sirte, Libya.
It is believed that many heavy weapons are kept underground when not in use and although the Tripoleans have been weakened they will not be over run any time soon, and that peace talks are the way forward at this stage, along with an international UN peacekeeping force.
A minister in the French government has now admitted it has been supplying weapons to Libyan rebels fighting Colonel Gaddafi’s forces for some time now and that a number of rebels around 500 in all are not far from the capital Tripoli, and are meeting less resistance than usual.
It is thought that the arms drops have been going on without the knowledge of France’s NATO allies such as the UK and US.
The weapons are said to include rocket launchers and anti tank missiles, it is thought that the rebels may destroy their first tank over the coming days. Although French military has said that the supplies only consisted of rifles and ammunition, it is widely understood off the record that extensive equipment has been loaned or sold to the rebels, now funded by a coalition of countries with interest in the region.
A spokesman of the French general staff stated the air drops in the Nafusa mountains began with humanitarian aid, including food, water and medical supplies, then progressed onto rifles, rocket launchers, and even an armoured people carrier – APC, and heavy machine guns.
Guns have also been supplied for the self defence of the Berber fighters, who are now advancing on Tripoli intent on slaughter, and have now pushed to within 65 kilometres of Tripoli.
These actions are going to reignite debate over the remit of NATO, which was authorised by the United Nations to protect Libyan civilians, though the loose wording of the UN resolution means that there may be scope for all kinds of action in the area.
One UN diplomat confirmed that the text of the UN resolutions on Libya does not prohibit the air drop of arms over Libya to protect civilians, if anything it is something that is known to be happening, not just by the French, but also by the U.S and Britain. Arms sales to Libyan rebels is expected to reach $1 billion over the next 4 months, much on credit, with some being paid for by recent loans, though it has been said that much of the recent funding has not appeared as expected.
In London, British foreign minister William Hague said the rebel leadership based in the eastern city of Benghazi had received the first $US100 million of international funding in the past week. This money will buy them at least 10 tanks and ammo. The drive to Tripoli is expected within 3 weeks. The rebels losing now is not an option for the allies as the large investment made in Libya needs to be paid back by the Libyan people.
The rebel commanders had complained earlier this month they were running out of money, and had not yet received any of the roughly $US1 billion promised by international donors. It is thought that the rebels have rejected a number of previous offers of equipment instead of money and that the allies are unwilling to hand over too much cash without seeing it is spent wisely.
Public sector strikes opposing the Pension reforms are confirmed for Thursday 30th June 2011. Trade Union Leaders after ballots have confirmed that a number of unions will go on strike.
The Public sector strikes will go ahead on Thursday, unless the government moves to block them in the courts after ministers failed to reach a settlement with union leaders and members over proposed pension reforms despite initially appearing to offer a compromise over the local government run scheme.
One of the overall leaders and general secretary of the TUC, Brendan Barber, has confirmed that strike action will go ahead in schools, colleges, universities, courts, ports and jobcentres which will be closed on Thursday 30th June 2011, after two hours of talks with ministers today and over the past week have failed to resolve what he has described as being major gaps between the two parties over the pension plans.
He confirmed that there were fundamental disagreements over the major plans to increase contributions, change the system of uprating schemes and increase the pension age in the public sector. Workers in the public sector have for a long time enjoyed fair benefits and they believe that they are unfairly being targeted after already agreeing to a number of cuts already in terms of overall staff numbers on local council spending.
Even the spending on the Job Centres is due to be slashed over the coming years, and it is thought that the government will move towards allowing job seekers to register with employment agencies whilst the Job Centres are closed.
PCS the largest civil service union leading Thursdays walkouts and strikes, called the talks a farce and explained that what they had been offered would put their members families and lives on the edge.
The biggest public sector union, Unison, which is thought to be heavily influenced by government threats, have indicated they would be considering their position and the talks had been enough for them to delay their strike ballot until later in the summer, in the hope of further concessions, which seems to be a union admitting defeat and not having the guts to support its civil service counterparts.
Unison members are said to be considering their support for the Union and a number of members have already defected to other unions which support public sector workers.
The government officially said that the talks had been constructive and has indicated that it is prepared to offer concessions on the local government scheme, about which there has been serious concern. The unions are in agreement that some kind of compromise can be reached.
Some fear that higher contributions could trigger a mass opt-out and the scheme’s collapse, leading to a potential government bail out in the future, and the long term success of the scheme must be protected.
The minister for the Cabinet Office, Francis Maude, and the chief secretary to the Treasury, Danny Alexander, made a joint statement:
“Today’s meeting was constructive and was just one of a series of ongoing talks the government has committed to with the TUC on public service pensions; further meetings have been scheduled for July. This is a genuine consultation to which we are committed in order to try and agree a way forward with the unions, including on how to implement the changes on contributions set out in the spending review.
“We recognise that the funding basis for the local government pension scheme is different. There are important implications for how the contributions and benefits interact, as both Lord Hutton and the unions have set out. On that basis, we have agreed to have a more in-depth discussion with local government unions and the TUC about how we take these factors into account.
“While the talks are ongoing it is obviously disappointing that some unions have decided on industrial action … Less than 10% of the civil service workforce has voted for strike actions and only about a third of teachers.
“We can assure the public now that we have rigorous contingency plans in place to ensure that their essential services are maintained during the strike action on Thursday.”
Barber said: “In some areas it’s clear that there is the possibility of agreement but in terms of some of the key issues there is clearly a major gap between our position and that of the government.
“The strikes will be taking place on Thursday. Four unions balloted their members and reached that decision and that reflects the degree of anger and worry and real fear there is across everyone who works for public sectors that their pensions are under threat.”
Mark Serwotka, the general secretary of the PCS, whose members are striking on Thursday “It was disappointing that today’s meeting proved to be no different to any of the others. It was a farce. Again the government has shown no interest in actually negotiating on any of the key principles at the heart of this dispute.”
“And this is a dispute that is entirely of the government’s making. We did not ask for pensions to be cut; we did not ask for public servants to be told they must work years longer and pay more for much less in retirement. Every independent analysis shows that public sector pensions are affordable now and in the future, and costs are falling in the long term.”
“On Thursday we will see hundreds of thousands of civil and public servants on strike and, on the experience of today’s meeting and the last few months of government obstinacy, we fully expect to be joined by millions more in the autumn.”
Dave Prentis, the head of Unison, said: “There was a sense that today we were in real negotiations.”
The Association of Teachers and Lecturers, along with the PCS, confirmed that it would go ahead with strikes, and that the Government had really picked the wrong fight and the Teachers would not be walked over in these ways.
There are fears that should students march in support of the teachers there could be scenes like during the recent student riots, yet on a bigger scale.
It is not expected that initial strikes would lead to hostile actions or marches etc, but simply the removal of labour and either a sit at home or at the school gates demo.
There have been suggestions on social network sites that teachers unions and the public sector unions are planning a march in London on the 10th July though this has yet to be confirmed.
We all have the right to strike or protest and this is our legal right. The army cannot strike and rightly so to an extent, they do not do the job for the money but should be fairly rewarded also.
The teachers and public sector workers have many benefits, probably too many, though it is hard to say that they should not get them, its just the private sector is often more concerned with money than staff happiness.
The public sector needs to be reduced, we are too reliant on the state. Cuts need to be made but maybe in staff numbers not benefits.
02/03/2012 – A bit late in updating, in the end it was believed he died due to natural causes. Most of the article below is speculation and the cause of death is natural.
Was Chris Shale Murdered
Chris Shales death actually came shortly after the report in which he was critical of the British Conservative Party, this report was leaked to the Mail on Sunday newspaper, and preceded his death. Of course that is certainly a stupid conspiracy theory and there is no evidence to support this, though currently the autopsy results have not been released.
Reported at the time
Christopher Shale who was a close friend of the British prime minister has been found dead in a portable toilet at one of the country’s leading music festivals today Sunday 26th June 2011 authorities have said.
It is not currently a murder investigation though police are keeping their enquiries open, there is no suggestion he has been murdered or stabbed. Chris Shale MP was a member of the Tory party.
Christopher Shale has died in unexplained circumstances in the toilets of the VIP area of the Glastonbury Festival which is an entertainment extravaganza and one of the fixtures of Britain’s music calendar. It has been suggested that the death may be drugs related. An autopsy and post mortem will be carried out.
The festival usually has a few deaths either drugs or medical related and St Johns Ambulance are usually on hand to help with any incidents. There is a high crime rate at the festival and security has been improved this year.
Mr Shale who was in his 50s had chaired the Conservative Association in David Camerons West Oxfordshire constituency and in a statement Cameron said he and his wife Samantha Cameron were devastated by the news. They are though to of spent time with him only recently in London. Cameron did consider attending the festival but his wife was unable to attend and Cameron had other commitments to attend to.
Cameron told how he was a great friend and had been a huge support over the last decade for him personally and Cameron said that Shale had been like a big rock in his life and had suddenly been rolled away, and that he would be sorely missed. Like so many others such as those families of servicemen in Afghanistan he had lost a close and valued friend.
Shale was staying the luxury and secluded and secretively restricted, celebrity-packed area of the festival, which is held on a farm in Somerset south west England and has drawn some 170,000 people this year, not the highest ever turn out but a massive number of people.
He was discovered by the police shortly after 9 a.m, it is thought he may have been there since the previous evening and it was a message on a friends phone which alerted police to his location.
Festival organizer Michael Eavis has said he was told the incident was “a suicide situation” but police have yet to confirm that, and no obvious signs of death were found. A post mortem will be carried out at the request of his family and to rule out conspiracy theories in due course.
“It is only a couple of hours ago,” Inspector Chris Morgan said. “We are still working on establishing a cause of death.”
News of the death comes the same day as Shale was quoted in a national newspaper as describing the weakness of his association in unusually frank terms.
“Over the years we have come across as graceless, voracious, crass, always on the take,” the Mail on Sunday quoted him as saying in a strategy document which the paper said it had seen.
According to the Mail, he added that people weren’t joining his group because they “think we’ll beg and steal from them. And they’re right.”
Shale worked as the chief executive of Oxford Resources Ltd., a cost reduction company.
It is tragic that a man of such great potential, who did so much, and could of done so much more has been lost. He should not be forgotten, and we should all strive to do better. How he died is not of importance. The man will be remembered.
David Cameron recently told the House of Commons that levels of gun and knife crime, particularly in inner city areas, were unacceptable and suggested one solution may lie with families.
There have been numerous deaths throughout the UK in the first half of 2011, with London having one of the highest knife crime rates in Europe.
He was questioned by Chuka Umunna MP, who had just met the family of Nana Darko-Frempong, 18, who died after being shot in south London on Monday.
The teenager was the third person to be killed in south London in a fortnight, and the seventh teenager to be killed this year. Knife crime is a problem which the government are now going to be putting additional resources into tackling.
Actor Sean Bean has been stabbed cut and beaten by a man outside The Hill Brasserie in Camden, North West London. His injurys are not thought to be life threatening. It is believed it may of been an attempted robbery.
The Hill Brasserie is based at 94 Haverstock Hill, Camden, North West London NW3 2BD.
The incident started after Sean Defended his friend – glamour model and former playboy girl April Summers from somone making rude comments and asking for money.
The attacker thought to be a well known beggar who lives in the same area as April and Sean. There is a widespread crack cocaine problem in Camden area, and Sean has been looking for a place in a more stable part of London for some time now.
Later in the day armed with a broken bottle and another crack crazed friend the man returned and attacked Sean. The attackers friend was said to run away after Sean Bean headbutted him and possibly broke his nose. Whilst acting in self defence Bean was stabbed in the arm and received cuts and blunt trauma wounds. The incident is said to of lasted around 4 minutes.
After receiving a few choice blows himself the beggar realised that Sean was not going to go down without a fight and the beggar ran away down a side street after stabbing Sean or trying to a number of times.
Sean gave chase but the man was able to jump over a wall and escape. Witnesses say that Sean was not the instigator of the violence but that he had to act in self defence after being attacked by a man who appeared to be high on drugs.
Mr Bean was said to have a cut arm and a bruised face, according to witnesses. They said that it appears that the man who attacked Sean ran off after being overwhelmed by Beans strength. Bean is believed to work out 3 times a week, and even at 52 his is as fit as men half his age.
After the incident the star walked back into the bar and, after staff gave him aid from a first aid kit, ordered another drink. He left around 20 minutes later and is believed to of attended by a private doctor at his home nearby. He needed a number of stitches on his arm, and the arm will be monitored to see if there is any potentially lasting damage.
A member of staff when questioned about the incident said that Sean is regular at The Hill and they hardly ever have any problems at the venue. It is believed that they have now recruited additional security staff to cover Sundays. The staff member Alex confirmed that Sean came in with a cut on his arm and a bruise on his eyebrow.
The trained first aider at the Hill patched up Sean with a first aid kit, before Sean had a couple of Whiskies to dull the pain. He drinks Jack Daniels, which is of course a bourbon not a Whisky, though never say that to Sean Bean.
Mr Bean, 52, and April Summers, 24, whose real name is Nadia Foster have been friends for a while and it is believed that they have recently started dating.
Mr Bean is understood to of purchased a stab resistant vest for April some time ago due the rising knife crime in Camden.
According to witnesses, a passer by (the attacker) made rude comments about Miss Summers who is a professional topless model who has appeared in a number of UK lads magazines as well as the Italian edition of Playboy.
She usually commands a fee of around £10,000 when she works, and lives in a nice flat on the outskirts of Camden. One of her neighbours has said that she finds April to be a wonderful neighbour, and has met a few of her nice gentleman friends.
As a result of this Mr Bean followed the man down the road to challenge him about his behaviour. Sean is a known gentleman and quite admired by the ladies.
Later in the evening when Mr Bean went out for a cigarette he was attacked by the man/beggar from earlier that day. It is thought the man may of tried to rob sean but Sean beat him, and received some beating as well. It was a savage encounter with a drug crazed man.
The star who lives close by was said to have been stabbed in the arm –believed to be with a broken glass and punched in the face according to witnesses. Police were then called.
When Police attended they were advised by Sean that he was not interested in pressing charges at this time. He has a busy work shedule and his latest blockbuster Game Of Thrones has been a massive success. It is a fantastic series in which he actually gets beheaded in one of the episodes.
Bean also appeared in Hollywood blockbuster Lord Of The Rings and of course Sharpe which is a great series that everyone should watch.
He divorced his fourth wife Georgina Sutcliffe last December after just two years marriage, and it was a stormy marriage throughout and Bean has been a new man since.
They said they had found it intolerable to live together and Miss Sutcliffe who Bean had actually first met after she was working at one of his favourite bars.
Sutcliffe had also once accused Bean of assault but the charges were dropped and it is thought that they both had been drinking at the time. Mr Bean who was born and raised in Sheffield, South Yorkshire was first married to a hairdresser called Debra James who his teenage sweetheart. This marriage did not work, though he has often said how he will always be friends with her. Although she once did try and stab him with a pair od scissors.
He then wed actress Melanie Hill and had two daughters Lorna, 23, and Molly, 19. He had met teh acress at drama college RADA but they divorced in 1997.
He then married Abigail Cruttenden, who he had met on the set of Sharpe in November 1997 and they had a daughter Evie, now 12, before divorcing in 2000, he has not married since.
Over the hills and far away song and Sharpe Clips.
Sean who is probably is most well known for his role in Sharpe, was attacked outside the Hill Bar and Brasserie in Camden, North West London late on Sunday evening and it is not yet known the full extent or long term injuries he may have.
He oftens goes out in a stab proof vest but it is not known if he was wearing one at the time of the incident. he wore cut resistant clothing during the filming of Sharpe during his sword fighting scenes.
He has been known to wear ballistic protection when he films in certain countries, and has a U.S firearms licence. If Miss Summers is Mr Bean’s latest girlfriend then it would come as no surprise to many of his fans, as Bean was once voted the worlds most handsome man.
The star first rose to fame as Mellors opposite Joely Richardson in the 1992 BBC production of Lady Chatterley’s Lover and has recently spoken of how he continues to enjoy drinking. He has been labeled an alcaholic in the past but it must be stressed he is not. He just likes a drink now and again, not all the time.
He recently said that he likes a good drink like the next man. But on his own terms, and he always feels a bit queasy at the thought of attending premieres.
Hes not that much of social type, and likes to do things with his children and enjoys his work but understands that if you court publicity you can’t complain if you get pestered, be he doesnt want to be pestered, so will defend himself when attacked. And has been caught fighting a number of times.
He is a family man and doesnt think that to be famous you need to be seen in clubs and bars, its what happens on screen which counts. He has been married four times but wouldnt say never again, but is just enjoying life at the moment.
The police had no comment on the incident and it is not known if Mr Bean will make any further comments any time soon on the matter. He is said to be a bit shook up by the stabbing.
Miss Summers has spoken out. She lives close to the bar and has said that said she was not injured in the incident. She spoke about her hero Mr Bean and passed on her best wishes to him privately. Mr Bean was heard in the background asking for a cut of tea “me lover” ‘ private matter. I don’t want to make any further comment. Dead Tone.
Another knife related instant in London. A teenage schoolboy who was stabbed in a south London street has died.
Police say the 15-year-old who was attacking in Camberwell south London was pronounced dead at 10.30pm on Wednesday, six hours after he was taken to hospital. A murder hunt had since been launched.
The emergency services arrived at Cormont Road on Wednesday afternoon and found the teenager with stab wounds to his body. He was then taken by road to hospital where doctors fought to save his life.
Police are investigating the death and are understood to have made several arrests overnight. It is not currently know who has been arrested and what charges have or have not been brought.
Detectives are still trying to establish a motive for the attack and it is not yet known if the murder was gang-related. There have been a number of gang related instances in London in the previous months.
The victim has been the fifth teenager to be stabbed to death in the capital this year, Scotland Yard said.
