34 year old Jason Lewin (pictured) from Morden and his half brother Stewart Palmer from Brentford, have been found guilty of aggravated burglary with intent to cause GBH following a trial at the Old Bailey.

The court heard how a third brother, Jonathan Palmer, had driven the car that struck and killed Mr Lee.

Palmer died in HMP Wandsworth whilst on remand, having been charged with Mr Lee's murder.

The victim, 75-year-old Peter Lee, had returned to his home in Welham Road, at around 5pm on June the 1st last year, to find two of his sons fighting with two burglars, Jason Lewin and Jonathan Palmer. Stewart Palmer had left the scene before Mr Lee had entered the house.

Mr Lee called police; meanwhile Jonathan Palmer managed to return to his car. He then drove the vehicle at Peter Lee, causing critical injuries. Mr Lee was taken to hospital where he died the following day.

Jason Lewin and Jonathan Palmer were arrested in the car, a VW Sharan, shortly after the incident. Stewart Palmer was arrested several days later. All three were charged with murder and aggravated burglary.

Lewin admitted at court to being involved in the cultivation of cannabis. He claimed that the aggravated burglary at Mr Lee's address was motivated by an incident in 2013 in which he was robbed at a cannabis factory in Sutton.

During the trial, the jury were directed to find Stewart Palmer not guilty of murder.

Lewin was found not guilty of murder, but both were found guilty of aggravated burglary with intent to cause GBH. They will be sentenced at the Old Bailey tomorrow.

Crossrail 2 could be "the decider" in the Tooting by-election next week

Conservative by-election candidate Dan Watkins was joined by the Secretary of State for Transport at Tooting Broadway station on Monday to discuss the future of Crossrail 2.

He claims the Crossrail line currently under construction will have "a transformative effect on London’s transport once it’s complete."

The subject is a controversial one in Tooting, as the original station had been planned at Tooting Broadway, but Transport for London (TfL) has discovered "difficult ground conditions under Tooting and is thinking of moving the station to Balham."

Tooting was originally chosen as it is "more in need of the economic boost and better rail connectivity that Crossrail 2 will bring."

However, by moving the station to Balham the cost of Crossrail 2 will be less and surface disruption during construction will be reduced.

The by-election will be held on the 16th. It was triggered after Labour MP Sadiq Khan was elected to the position of London Mayor earlier this month.

The full list of candidates;
Rosena Chantelle Allin-Khan, Labour Party
Dan Watkins, Conservative Party
Des Coke, Christian People's Party
Alexander James Glassbrook, Liberal Democrats
Howling Laud Hope, The Official Monster Raving Loony Party
