    Long time reader…first time commenter.

    Is the video “tribute” really necessary to post? It shows a bunch of people breaking various traffic laws and generally terrorizing this part of London we live in. While the tragedy on our doorsteps is just that…i fail to see how a bunch of boy racers acting anti socially pays tribute to his memory at all.

    It should be referred to the police and appropriate action taken.

      Hello James. Considering a proportion of readers may have been wondering what was going on during Wednesday evening, I think it’s absolutely justified. If you believe it should be referred to the police, I’m sure they’d be interested to hear from you. The two coppers on the scene on Wednesday night didn’t seem too bothered, though.
