    On 1 August 2018, 'drill' "music" rapper and local resident Siddique Kamara (aka Incognito) (above) was murdered in Warham Street, Camberwell, just after 7.00 p.m.

    Siddique Kamara was himself cleared at the Old Bailey in January of murdering Abdirahman Mohamed.

    Two other men aged 16 and 31 were taken to hospital with non life-threatening injuries, and have now been arrested on suspicion of murder..

    Detectives from the Met’s Homicide and Major Crime Command are appealing for witnesses and information.

    Detective Chief Inspector Richard Leonard, who is leading the investigation, said: “Another young man has tragically and needlessly lost his life through an act of violence.

    “We are keeping an open mind about the possible motive for this attack, but at this early stage one line of enquiry is this being gang-related.

    “I’d like to reassure the community that we have made two arrests and we are working around the clock to establish what happened and bring those responsible to justice.

    “However, we cannot do this alone and I’d appeal to any witnesses or anyone with information to get in touch with us as a matter of urgency. Any information, however insignificant you think it is, is vital to our investigation. Any information provided will be treated in the strictest confidence.”

    Detective Superintendent Helen Lyons of Southwark Borough, said: “This is an extremely troubling incident and I fully appreciate the concerns it will stoke in the immediate vicinity and the surrounding community.

    “Residents can expect to see a significantly increased police presence in the area. Anyone with any concerns can approach one of these officers or contact their local neighbourhood team.

    “We will be doing everything possible to assist our colleagues in the Homicide and Major Crime Command to achieve a positive end to this investigation and to try to prevent any further escalation of this violence.”

    Anyone with information is asked to call the incident room on 020 8721 4622 or police on 101 quoting 6806/01AUG.

    Information can also be reported to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at crimestoppers-uk.org.

    On a different note, there's a new Lebanese restaurant on Church Street called Hayatt where the old Turkish take-out was, with a shisha garden out the back. I think there's a 20% discount for the rest of August - I've tried the food and it's really good.

    Yeah it's had a few changes lately and I noticed it was completely empty on the first couple of opening nights. The discount signs went up quickly after that. What did you have? Is it a quick lunch place or proper dinner? Do vegetarians have interesting options?

    Earlier today, 31-year-old Kenneth Umezie of Don Phelan Close in Southwark appeared at Camberwell Green Magistrates' Court accused of murdering drill music rapper Sidique Kamara.

    Judge Susan Green ordered him to appear at the Old Bailey on Friday for a bail application, ahead of a preliminary hearing on 5 September.

    He was remanded in custody.

    I djed at a friend’s party at the chateau on Saturday and have to say it’s a great little venue - it’s a shame it’s only a pop up til the end of September, apparently the owner plans to turn it into a ‘champagne bar’ after that - hopefully someone will disabuse them of that notion

    I know, the only thing that gives me hope is that i doubt that would have any success in camberwell but then again part of me fears I could be wrong

    They couldn't make it work as a cocktail bar ('Communion') long term, and several other wine bar type places (eg nape) have been short lived or are struggling so I think we are safe Especially if they maintain the dingy lighting.

    So there's another multiple stabbing in Camberwell: Boy critical after four teenagers stabbed

    What is the answer to all this? What realistic ideas do people have that can put a stop to this ridiculousness?

    Sorry, hadn't seen this before. They have a decent range of veggie mezzes etc... along with lots of grilled meat. I don't think it's a nip in lunch place, but good supper option.

    It's like living in some awful parallel universe, seeing helicopters landing on Walworth Rd to collect another child.

    It does need some pretty radical action. The Glasgow knife crime reduction is often cited as a positive model but there was no race-related element to that (although there is/was an embedded religious divide). I do think this is at least partly due to the institutionalised abandonment of black men and boys.

    The problem seems that it's now descending into tit-for-tat gang fights, when the ultimate solution would be a long-term social issue that needs fixing. In the short-term, I really don't know. It's maddening. All that I can say on the positive side is that at least we don't have the same gun culture as the US, even though a few do get around the system.

    "According to the Micropub Association, it is “a small freehouse which listens to its customers, mainly serves cask ales, promotes conversation, shuns all forms of electronic entertainment and dabbles in traditional pub snacks.”

    Sounds like a normal non chain pub to me, just with the hipster blurb added.
