    He lived in a car surrounded by his collection for around three years. Think he had something to do with the caravan that had a foxtons forsake sign smashed though it's window a few years back. So wished I'd got chance to chat with him. Friend just told me the police Thier this morning found dead. Really sad. Hope he didn't suffer. please let me know if you have any info wasn't to commemorate him in some way. Cheers

    Bleak news...I live quite close by and was aware of the guy and that the parking lot has been sealed all day, posted about it earlier on the Brixton news thread here.......Brixton news, rumours and general chat: Summer 2019. Didn't know the man personally and could be wrong but I don't think he was involved with the caravan incident.

    Oh no! I always looked out for him / his higgledy piggledy home when I went past on the bus, always with a half-formed thought to find out more about him. He was large in my imagination and I always sent him prayers and blessings as I passed.

    Police cordon still in place, there is a big blue tarp covering a large section of the car park

    So a third day of the police cordon, I don't know what happened here but the cops must be taking it v seriously to have a car with at least one officer in it,sometimes two, parked up by the site 24/7.
