South-West London and North Surrey’s News today beyond the official mourning.

A Londis shop in Ashford has been robbed at knifepoint. 

A CCTV picture has been released, following the incident just after midday on Saturday the 13th of August. 

A man entered the shop on Glenfield, threatened the cashier, and stole around £240. 

The suspect has been described as a White man, in his mid to late 20’s, with a dark coloured beard and short scruffy dark brown hair. 

He was wearing a dark coloured t-shirt, with dark coloured shorts and dark trainers. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact Surrey Police. 


The family of a man shot dead in Streatham Hill will be able to view some of the bodycam footage recorded on the night. 

The 24-year-old was killed on September the 5th

Family spokesman Jefferson Bosela told BBC Newsnight that the family would be able to view the footage next week. 

That’s according to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC). 

A plaque has been unveiled for a firefighter from Twickenham who was killed in the line of duty. 

Fredereick Charles Willoughby was “overcome by fumes” while tackling a four-hour fire at the Royal Palace Hotel in Kensington. 

His niece, Liz Acris, says he had a “tremendous sense of duty”. 

It was unveiled by the Norbiton-based Fire Brigades Union, around 100 metres away from where the hotel stood.

Mental health charity Mind says people struggling following the shooting of Chris Kaba in Streatham Hill should reach out. 

It says that “the killing of an unarmed black man by a police officer is hard to bear” and that “racial trauma is real”. 

It adds that the event could be “incredibly triggering”. 

The police watchdog is continuing to investigate the incident. 

A pop-up COVID-19 vaccine clinic is coming to Twickenham next Thursday. 

It’ll be at York House on Richmond Road from 10.30am to 4pm. 

No appointments are required. 

The COVID-19 autumn booster is also available to people aged 50 years and older, those aged 5 years and over in a clinical risk group, frontline health and social care staff, and those who care for vulnerable people with weakened immune systems. 

A series of webinars have been launched by the Surrey Wildlife Trust, to help people “take action” to help nature. 

They include ideas on how to create habitats, show examples of the benefits that can have for nature, and how to volunteer. 

They’re free, and you can find more information here:
