    There's yellow boards on Coldharbour Lane asking for info about the murder of a Jason Dawes (also known as 'Half A Penny') on Monday night (3.40am).

    He was stabbed to death outside the block by Somerleyton Road. Apparently, he'd only come out of prison two days before.

    I heard about it on the news. Road blocks and closures. It must be a bit weird living there seeing the reflection of those constantly present yellow boards.

    I've added a picture of the police board to the growing catalogue here

    Maybe I'll send the link to my local MP.

    I dealt with Half A Penny (so-called because he was the younger, smaller brother of a man nicknamed "Penny") when I was on the Flying Squad in the early 90s. He was involved with some kidnap and robbery plot aimed at security van staff amongst other things.

    Live by the Sword, die by the sword sounds like it may be appropriate here ... :(

    Colin Rodgers, then also aged 35, from Dulwich, was charged with the murder of Jason Dawes.

    He was acquitted or murder at his trial, having claimed self-defence.
