Ian Page - November 2006
Three men have been jailed for kicking a teenager to death over a row when he bumped into them in the street.
Ian Page, 19, was killed on the Edgware Road, north London, in November last year, following a night out with friends.
Andre Campbell, 24, his half-brother Lloyd Henry, 20, and Jermaine Yateman, 19, were convicted over his killing at the Old Bailey.
Campbell and Yateman were both found guilty of murder, and jailed for life with a minimum term of 15 years.
Henry, who was convicted of manslaughter, was sentenced to eight years. Both he and Yateman were sent to young offender institutions.
They were part of a gang, captured on security camera footage, that dragged Mr Page to the floor then kicked him as he lay motionless beneath them.
Judge Brian Barker, the Common Serjeant of London, said: "What we have seen on that CCTV is chilling and it is scary.
"It is totally unacceptable and the public have every right to be concerned about the increase in this sort of violence.
"This was selfish thoughtless, group violence. It was deliberately continued when there was no possible danger. It was unwarranted and it led to catastrophe."
The judge told all three men: "This is a tragic case for all concerned. After an inoffensive evening of enjoyment with his friends Ian Page, 19, died a sudden, brutal and totally unnecessary death at your hands.
"The spark that cause the flare-up was we never properly identified but on any view it was pretty inconsequential."
After some "shouting and posturing", Campbell went off to a kebab shop to get help from his brother and friends.
The gang returned to where Mr Page was, isolating him in a corner and chasing off his friends before dragging him off and kicking him until he was unable to get up.
As his assailants fled they each laid a final kick into his prone body, before Yateman returned to rob him of his gold bracelet and attacked him again.
Mr Page suffered severe brain damage and died four days later in hospital.
Yateman, of Colindale, north London, smirked in the dock as the victim's father Kenny Page read out a victim impact statement, telling how he had gone "through hell" over his son's death.
Lorraine Beasley, Ian Page's mother, described how he "loved life" and "had time for everybody".
"When my son's life was taken, part of my own life was taken as well," she said.

Richard Holmes 21
2nd November 2006
Chingford, east London
Richard Holmes, 21, was shot dead by associates of rapper Dwayne Mahorn, known as MC Durrty Goodz, in Chingford, east London, on 4 November 2005. Killers Anthony Green, 35, of Loughton, Essex and Carl Dobson, 23, of Stratford, London, were given 30-year minimum terms at the Old Bailey. Mr Mahorn, 25, of Chingford, east London, was cleared of murder. The court heard Mr Mahorn, who was also cleared of manslaughter, complained the song by Mr Holmes's friend, Sabar Shah, 16, was disrespectful to him, a court heard. The song accused Mr Mahorn of having "lost touch with his roots", said Richard Horwell, QC, prosecuting. Mr Shah's lyrics said: "Over the years, things change in the hood. I used to have a lot of respect for Durrty Goodz - Not no more." Mr Horwell said Mr Shah's point was he felt Mr Mahorn had turned his back on the estate since his music career had taken off.
Mr Horwell said Mr Mahorn cornered Sabar Shah, himself a budding rapper who was known as Shak, and demanded an apology. "I am a 24-year-old man," Mr Mahorn is alleged to have told him. "I can't have a 16-year-old saying things like that to me." Shak refused to apologise and later that evening Mr Holmes and some friends were surrounded by associates of Mr Mahorn armed with a Mach-10 machine gun. Mr Holmes was shot in the leg and the back as he ran off with his friends under a hail of bullets.

Samantha Anderson 29
28th October 2006
Tragic nursery nurse Samantha Anderson was killed in a frenzied knife attack after she returned to visit her ex-boyfriend's flat. Today murder squad police were piecing together details of the 29-year-old's recent troubled past for clues to the motive for the savage killing. Ms Anderson, who cared for youngsters at the Buffer Bear Nursery in Newcastle's Neville Street, was found dead of multiple stab wounds on Monday night. She had made the 20-minute walk from her work at Newcastle Central Station to a ground floor flat in Vallum Court, off Westgate Road, where she had previously lived with her Iraqi-Kurd boyfriend, before they split up a few months ago.
The events in the flat that night are now being investigated by police.
It is understood Ms Anderson's 29-year-old estranged boyfriend has been arrested on suspicion of her alleged murder and will be questioned further today. Det Supt Steve Wade, leading the inquiry into her killing, said: "Samantha's family have been left distraught by her death. "We need to hear from her friends and colleagues who may have information about her recent lifestyle. "She had gone to the flat where she suffered multiple stab wounds. Someone may know whether she had been experiencing any personal problems before her death. "We are also trying to trace the route she took after work as she made her way to the flat. CCTV footage from around the area is being viewed today."
Samantha had met her asylum-seeker boyfriend in 2003. They had been living together at Vallum Court from 2004, but had split up in August this year. It is understood his asylum status had run out yesterday, but he had re-applied and the matter was under consideration by the Home Office. Ms Anderson had gone to live with family in Cramlington since the break-up of her relationship. Her parents, although divorced, both live nearby and are being comforted by other members of the family today. Police and emergency services were alerted when a friend of the victim's ex-boyfriend called to see him at around 8pm on Monday. He couldn't get a reply, but noticed a powerful smell of petrol coming from the flat.
When firefighters arrived at the 20-storey tower block, off Westgate Road, they found petrol had been poured around the area. It was feared a bid had been made to set the premises alight, but the emergency services prevented any further danger. Samantha's body was found in the living room. A Home Office pathologist said she died from multiple stab wounds. http://icnewcastle.icnetwork.co.uk/chroniclelive/eveningchroniame_page.html

Lisa Smedley, 20, was found dying in the road after she was allegedly hit by a BMW M3. Ashan Mushtaq — who was uninsured — allegedly fled the scene with the help of groom Kamran Akram. Both went ahead with the wedding the next day. A jury was told that the top-of-the range sports convertible had been hired a day earlier by Mushtaq’s elder brother, to be used by the groom’s party — and only he was insured to drive it. Mushtaq, 23, allegedly took it for a spin the night before his duties.
Prosecutor Adrian Reynolds told Derby Crown Court: “The car was parked outside the house, and Mushtaq decided to go out in it. He told police he thought he was insured. “It was a cold night, but he put the roof down and drove at a speed he described as 40mph.”
Witness Ali Akbar said he was doing 38mph in his Peugeot 106 when he was overtaken by Mushtaq shortly before the accident. He said: “The BMW must have been going at twice my speed.”
Lisa was trying to cross Warwick Avenue, Derby, when she was struck by the car, which drove on for more than half a mile. The tragedy happened days before her daughter Versace’s third birthday in September last year

He may have been just a lowly beggar, but he was a human being and another victim of this pathetic Goverment's failed multiculti experiment. One hopes soon the sheeple will wake up before it's too late
"The police have blood on their hands because the first time they let him down and it's too late now," said close family friend Carly Frances.A teenager being sought over the murder of a young father in east London may have fled abroad, police have said.

27th June 2006
Golders Green, north-west London
Anne Mendel was brutally stabbed 14 times by sick and twisted teenager Kemi Adeyoola who was only 17 at the time. A millionaire's daughter Adeyoola has been found guilty today of killing an elderly woman after writing an 18-page murder manual whilst in a young offenders institute serving time for shoplifting. Adeyoola, who was found guilty of murder on a 10-2 majority, is expected to be sentenced on Wednesday.
Mrs Mendel, who was a former neighbour of Adeyoola, was found by her husband covered in coats in the hallway of their home. Leonard Mendel, 81, told the court he tried to give his wife of 50 years the kiss of life when he returned from an errand to find the hall phone wires cut and blood on the walls. The prosecution said Adeyoola (a millionaires daughter remember) had chosen Mrs Mendel as a "soft target" on which to practise before finding a "rich, elderly and defenceless" woman to kill for her money. After the verdict, it emerged that Adeyoola's murder manual was passed to Barnet Youth Offending Team, which includes local police, after her three months in Bullwood Hall expired. The team supervised her for a three-month licence period. A month after it expired, she killed Mrs Mendel.
Kally Gilligan 15
12th June 2006
Lower Broughton, Salford, Greater Manchester
TWO weeks ago teenager Kally Gilligan was celebrating the end of her GCSEs with friends at their school prom. Today the bright 15-year-old was due to start a new office job. Instead she was lying dead in a mortuary - shot by her jilted boyfriend Josh Thompson, 18, before the cowardly killer turned the gun on himself.
Greater Manchester Police said a murder investigation was taking place but no-one else was wanted in relation to the killing. Thompson was said to have been devastated after recently breaking up with Kally. Witnesses reported hearing an argument at the terrace house before shots rang out in the quiet street. Police are now trying to find out how Joshua came to be in possession of the gun. Personally I dont think it's too hard to work out
Kally's family described her as a "kind and considerate, beautiful, young lady". Joshua's family also released a statement, in which they said the 18-year-old was a "bright young man with a life ahead of him". So why did he turn the gun on himself and blasting his ex in the back of the head with a shotgun is not exactly the brightest of ideas is it? His family also said he was a lovely son who cared for all around him. I'm sorry but he aint going to be another St Stephen or St Anthony. Your son Mr and Mrs Thompson was a cold blooded killer and one wonders how much part you two had in his upbringing as the way you have described him is obviously a million miles from the truth
Kynan Eldridge 31
2nd June 2006
Findern Court, Mansfield
Kynan died from stab wounds to his neck and chest after a 'frenzied' attack on 5th September 2005 at the Findern Court property in Mansfield where he rented a room from his killer Abderrahmen Dhaou. Dhaou admitted killing his lodger at Nottingham Crown Court on Friday, but speaking after the hearing Kynan's devastated mum Annie Eldridge says his death has exposed an immigration loophole which the Home Office needs to address. Her comments are centred on claims the 35-year-old North African married a British national and then divorced her –– although it is thought there was no requirement for him to inform the Immigration Nationality Directorate about his change in circumstances.
Eight months after his death, Annie and her husband Peter are still struggling to come to terms with the brutal nature of how their son was taken away from them. "Kynan's death has completely destroyed our daily lives, our health and our dreams for the future," she told Chad. "Like most young people Kynan had dreams and plans for the future and they have been brutally destroyed." She says she believes Kynan's horrific killing also led to a deterioration in the health of his beloved granddad Bernard Slee, who died in January from what she says was the immense shock and trauma he suffered in the aftermath of the stabbing. Kynan grew up in Ravenshead and moved to Mansfield to work as a sound technician after finishing a Business Studies degree at Nottingham Trent University. Before his death he had been renting a room temporarily from Dhaou until he found somewhere else to live.
Abderrhamen Dhaou has denied murdering Kynan but admitted manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility because he was mentally ill at the time. He will be sentenced at Nottingham Crown Court on 23rd June.

The Crown Prosecution Service is expected to bring a charge of murder against the 20-year-old. Det Supt Bill Shackleton, who is leading the investigation, said that a file would be sent to the Crown Prosecution Service. Both men have told detectives they are originally from Lithuania, the Eastern European country which joined the EU in May, 2004. However, detectives are now known to be checking their nationality status and trying to establish whether they have any convictions.

Mr Gange, of Stone in Staffordshire but originally from Derby, was returning from a family party, when he was attacked by the gang. Shaun Johns, 18, of Stowmarket Drive, Chaddesden, Derby was convicted of Mr Gange's murder. Calvin Grant, 17, of Normanton, Derby, was cleared of murder but convicted of manslaughter. Mixed race Jak Jones, 18, of no fixed abode, had previously admitted the murder of Mr Gange. Career criminals Jones and Johns had only just been released from prison. The court heard the youths had spent the evening prowling the streets of Derby looking for someone to rob before attacking Mr Gange. A post morten examination showed Mr Gange died of multiple head injuries, due to being punched, kicked and stamped on. Forensic examinations of the scene and cuts and scrapes to Mr Gange's body suggested he was assaulted and thrown over a hedge. Two vertebrae in Mr Gange's neck were also fractured. Jones and Johns have since admitted stabbing and robbing a man in Derby the day before killing Mr Gange. Jones also pleaded guilty to the attempted robbery of a man, at knifepoint, four days later. In a letter to his local newspaper some days before his murder, Mr Gange wrote "Criminals given soft sentences often re-offend, yet victims' families get a life sentence. Build as many prisons as need be and let life be life."
John Living, 30

Ramsgate Road, Margate
John Living, a 30-year-old logistics controller from Ramsgate, was riding his motorcycle in Margate when unlicensed, uninsured and unemployed Czech immigrant Marek Tomi cut into his lane, knocking him from his Triumph motorbike. Mr Living sustained fatal injuries and died almost instantly. Marek Tomi admitted driving without due care and attention and received a £100 fine, 200 hours' community service and a two-year driving ban. The fine took into account the fact that Tomi was living on benefits. Mr Living's parents are planning to lobby Tony Blair with a petition calling for the law to be toughened up.
They have also set up a website http://www.john-living.co.uk/ to campaign for more stringent penalties. They say they will never get over the loss of their son, whom they describe as a "gentle giant" who "always had a smile on his face". Yet another Briton dies at the hands of an unlawful immigrant. What price a British life? In Mr Living's case, a paltry £100.
Mark Conway, 28

Copenhagen Road, Hull
Mark Conway was stabbed 15 times where he worked as a shift manager at Land Food Products, Hull. He had the audacity to call into his office to tell off Saman Sali Karim, 26 who had arrived 4 hours late for work. Karim was "in a strop" as he had not been allowed to have the day off. After the attack, he escaped to a flat in Folkestone, Kent, but was later arrested by armed police. The court heard Karim had a history of violence and was known to carry knives if he thought there would be a fight. Defence counsel Richard Barraclough QC, said Karim had been tortured under the old regime in Iraq and arrived in the UK as a refugee in July 1999. The court heard Karim had a history of violence and was known to carry knives if he thought there would be a fight. Judge Michael Mettyear recommended a minimum term of 16 years and 133 days.
So he arrived in 1999 and still needed an interpreter in 2006, apart from the hiddeous crime this failure to learn our language for 7 years is another classic example of the abject failure of our enforced multicultural society

Mixed race killer, Daniel Gonzalez, went on a 3-day drug-fuelled rampage in September 2004 during which he knifed to death four innocent victims all of whom were previously unknown to him: 73-year old Mrs Marie Harding, Kevin Molloy, 46, and Jean Robinson and her husband Derek, aged 68 and 75 respectively. He also attempted to murder two others. Inspired by Freddy Krueger and the Columbine High School massacre, Gonzalez' only motive for his crimes was to become famous as a serial killer. After he was sentenced to six life sentences, Gonzalez' mother, Lesley Savage, blamed social services and the medical establishment for failing to provide appropriate support for her unemployed loner son, who had a history of mental illness.

Christopher Benson, 20
6th March 2006
Britannia Road, Morley, Leeds
AN OUTRAGED judge condemned prosecutors for not charging a councillor who killed a man while speeding with causing death by dangerous driving. Judge James Stewart QC, sitting at Leeds Crown Court, said he was astonished 31-year-old Intkhab Alam had only been charged with driving without due care and attention over the hit-and-run death of Christopher Benson, 20 in May last year. The irate judge said the maximum sentence for careless driving was a fine – and he could not jail him on that charge.
Marshall Haynes, 13 Liam Hastings, 13 Josh Bartlett, 13 and Howard Hillsdon
4th March 2006
Eastern Bypass, Oxford
There were gasps and tears in Oxford Crown Court as a nurse admitted causing the deaths of three teenage boys and a motorist in a car crash. Angela Dublin, of London Road, Headington, told a packed courtroom yesterday (Fri) that she was responsible for the deaths of 13-year-olds Marshall Haynes, Liam Hastings and Josh Bartlett and motorist Howard Hillsdon in the crash on Oxford's Eastern Bypass last May.
Four charges of causing death by dangerous driving were put to the 45-year-old. To each she answered "Guilty", to the sound of sobs from a gallery packed with relatives of those who lost their lives. Dublin will be sentenced next month. Each charge carries a maximum sentence of 14 years in prison.
Levi Bleasdale 3
22nd February 2006
Ormerod Road, Burnley
THE family of hit-and-run toddler Levi Bleasdale last night branded the law an "absolute disgrace" after the speeding driver who killed her was jailed for just 12 weeks. Mum Kirsty was crossing the road with three-year-old Levi when uninsured Mohammed Aqueel Hussain ploughed into her in a stolen VW Golf. She said: "This is a nightmare. "This sentence is nothing. He has taken my daughter's life. I'll serve a life sentence but he'll be scot-free in weeks."
Levi's grandfather Michael Ryan added: "We are all absolutely appalled. A few months ago someone who stole a teddy from a memorial site for Levi was sentenced to eight months in jail. "Yet the person who killed her has only got three. It's a disgrace. You'd get more for shoplifting."
Hussain, 26, who has never taken a driving test, admitted careless driving and failing to stop after an accident or report it.
Magistrates could have jailed him for a maximum of six months - but opted for a 12- week term after hearing there was conflicting evidence over whether his driving had been erratic. But Michael insisted the family did NOT blame the magistrates and said the chairman of the bench was clearly upset that his hands were tied over sentencing.
He'd never taken a driving test and had no insurance. He killed a 3-year-old girl while speeding and didn't even bother to stop. But he was jailed for JUST 12 WEEKS
Andrew Tollon 26
21st February 2006
A BOURNEMOUTH teenager sobbed as he was put behind bars for killing a promising young businessman while driving underage. Shahan Hayavi, 17, was given three years and four months' custody after admitting causing death by dangerous driving when he was 16.
Judge Samuel Wiggs told him: "What you did was a dreadful thing. You were not old enough to drive - the car was unlawful. "You tried to escape from the police. You did not stay to face the music - you ran away."
Court rules usually restrict the identity of criminals under the age of 18 but Judge Wiggs, sitting at Bournemouth Crown Court, lifted restrictions due to the seriousness of the offence.
Distraught friends and relatives of victim Andrew Tollon travelled hundreds of miles to be in court to see justice done. The court heard Hayavi, of Green Road, Charminster, (Charminster = The Arab Quarter) was driving a Ford Fiesta on June 24 last year and had four passengers. The vehicle sped from Wimborne Road, Winton, into Jameson Road when the occupants realised they were being followed by police.
All five jumped out of the moving vehicle and ran away, leaving the car to continue moving forwards at the Travis Perkins premises in Jameson Road. It was there that popular young businessman Andrew Tollon was crushed between the moving car and his own van. He received fatal injuries.
Hayavi was arrested minutes later as he tried to hide from police in a nearby Tesco Express store, the court heard.
Hayavi, who shook and cried throughout the hearing, pleaded guilty to causing death by dangerous driving.
