An update on the murder which took place at Dewhurst Road W14 has just been sent to me by local police - I didn't originally report this as it is officially outside the Bush but it's clearly something a lot of you are interested in, so I hope this helps. I've noticed writing this blog that you get periods when much of the stories relate to crime and then very large gaps between them - at the moment, sadly, its the crime story time. And as my time last week with the Shepherd's Bush Police showed, there are some pretty serious crims in W12 that need catching. Just the time to be cutting Police numbers, then.
Here's the Dewhurst Road update:
