I've got a friend who has put a video on Facebook of the Chinook on the ground while her son is playing football.

There are other civilians much closer, nobody seems to get out of it, and there doesn't seem to be any cordon to keep people away from it.

I screenshotted some of it to be able to show you, so it is on my phone, but have no idea how to put that onto urban from my phone.

Often happens if the helicopters are too big for the helidpad on Kings. Often air sea rescue sort of stuff. Nothing of any significance.
Surely the Armed Forces have choppers other than the Chinook in their inventory? Seems a bit of an overkill...

24 June 2019:

Atlantic Road by Argos is all sealed off by the police.
Explanation:

"A Metropolitan Police spokeswoman has confirmed that police were called to reports of men fighting with knives."

She said: "Police were called at 11.59am to reports of an altercation involving a male with a knife at Atlantic Road.

"Officers and armed officers attended.

"A man, no further details, was arrested nearby on suspicious of being in possession of an offensive weapon, criminal damage and affray.

"He was taken to a west London police station where he remains at this time.

"No persons are believed to have been injured.

"Cordons are in the process of being lifted."

Heatwave shocker: the fridges in Tesco aren't cold enough so the food is being removed. Chaos. And there's a car parked in Ruschroft Road with the engine running and no adults in it. Someone's gone to do their shopping and considerately left the air con on for their kids.

A bit odd nobody has noted that Coldharbour Lane has been sealed off between Gresham Road and Shakespeare Road since about 7 pm (ie 3 hours at the time of writing).

Something to do with the Domino Club (again). Multiple police cars and ambulances there at 6.30 aprox, but the sealing off came a bit later.

The only bus residents of the CH1 Gramsci zone can catch at the moment seems to be the P5 (once ever 20 minutes).

I went past around 6 and all was quiet but it's still closed off now. Nothing I can see on Twitter.

I was coming back from the shopping in Brixton and swimming at the Rec about 6.30 and the police had blocked off CHL to cars and pedestrians from the Domino club to the LJ railway bridge.

The ambulance people were around someone outside the Domino club. Police said they were doing CPR on the person. But wouldnt say what it was about. I didn't take pictures as I thought it would be in bad taste. Police said the person was alive but fighting for his life.

Several people said we lived in the cordoned off zone and wanted to get home the police refused to let us through. It got somewhat argumentative as it ended up with half a dozen of us just wanting to go home. We just wanted to walk home. Why they couldn't just have escorted people throught the cordon I don't know. The critically hurt person was outside the Domino club on the pavement not on the road in full view.

I ended up walking all the way around to the LJ end and persuaded the police to let me through.

I wasn't happy at having to do that.

Over reaction by police imo.

Whole road is still cordoned off now at quarter past eleven.

I can only assume it was a stabbing or fight. As the road is still closed off I guess it ended up as fatal.

To be frank this kind of event is not unusual around here.

Just wish the police would consider that people live here and want to get home.

Word on the street is that a fight broke out around the Barrier Block lawn and someone was stabbed running past the Domino Club.

All their patrons have relocated to the wall opposite the club and are making much use of the off licence opposite.

There's shitloads of tanked up people on the streets of the centre of Brixton now. I fear fisticuffs later.

I ended up getting home by walking through Loughborough park. Its rather nice if a bit dilapidated due to government cuts to Councils.

The Latin Americans were all there as they usually are in the good weather. I like to see them use the park. They all come as family groups to hang out all day together. Nice people never cause any trouble to anyone. They socialise, have a barbecue, kids play, they have a few drinks and don't end up fighting each other. Lot to be said for Latin American culture.

Also some saw Indian people doing work on the vegetable garden that has been neglected for quite some time. Which was nice.

To much heat plus alcohol is not a good combination.

I've had a long day and was feeling somewhat irritable when faced with police cordon and I only had one pint at SW9.

Despite my annoyance at not getting home easily I would put in a word for the ambulance service.

They turned up in force and looked to me like they were doing all the could to help the person.

They must have got to the scene quickly as they could.

Coldharbour Lane is still closed off which suggests that it's a serious incident.

Update: the police are reporting that a 54 year old man was seriously injured.

Life is a horizontal fall.
Police have made two arrests after a man was stabbed to death in Brixton last night (Saturday, June 29).

Officers rushed to the scene on Coldharbour Lane to reports of a fight having broken out shortly before 6pm.

A man, aged 54, was found with stab injuries and was taken to hospital.

Tragically, the victim died at 10.10pm.

Two arrests have been made and a crime scene is currently in place.

The police cordon in CHL is still up. So no traffic. Including no cycling.

If this incident is formally linked to the Domino club I suspect the council/police will try to shut it down.

IIRC the last round if incidents led to much stricter licensing rules for them.

Note that Dr Hashi giving evidence there is now Cllr Hashi (Stockwell Ward).

The Domino Club now seems to be performing a similar role to the former William Hill betting shop opposite the barrier block during the day. William Hills used to attract all sorts of passing trade who hung out outside with their car doors open blaring music and presumably using the betting shop loos. It could be intimidating to walk past, as a lot of the guys - and it was always guys - had attitude.

I'm not sure that punishing the Domino Club for this incident is right - but I would heartily welcome the Council putting the building under direct control (assuming they still own it, which I think they do).

These conditions have never been enforced and council has shown no willingness to enforce them whatsoever since that Licensing Committee ruling.
Isn’t it up to the management of the club to enforce the conditions rather than the council?

If the council are aware of breaches they can act against them.

The inconvenience is, no doubt, inconvenient. However, please bear in mind that in a case such as this, there may be a need to secure an area in order to collect forensic evidence of what happened.

It would not surprise me if there simply were not enough police officers to perform escort duties.

"Word on the street is that a fight broke out around the Barrier Block lawn and someone was stabbed running past the Domino Club."
"I'm not sure that punishing the Domino Club for this incident is right - but I would heartily welcome the Council putting the building under direct control (assuming they still own it, which I think they do)."
Until we are presented with the actual facts, it may be difficult to apportion blame.

Hopefully, those responsible for investigating this murder will make the facts known as soon as practicable (subject to not prejuducing any subsequent criminal trial).

Condolences to those affected, including the friends and family of the 54-year old deceased, who will presumably be named in due course.
