A disused petrol station, targeted by travellers, has gone up for sale.

Frontier Estates, owners of the former Shell Garage in Coombe Road in New Malden, has blamed the community for the move.

The Milton Keynes based company had wanted to turn the site into a number of flats and retail.

Frontier said “local support for the project had been lacking” and also blamed the police and council for failing to help with the clean up.

Man pleads guilty to killing another man in Morden

A 39-year-old man with paranoid schizophrenia has pleaded guilty to killing a university lecturer in Morden in January last year.

Mark Loveridge admitted to the manslaughter of 30-year-old Daniel Young (pictured above), on the grounds of diminished responsibility.

Loveridge, (pictured below), has remanded in custody and will be sentenced on October the 24th.

Detective Inspector Mick Norman, said: "Daniel was stabbed as he walked to a catch a train to work. It seems incomprehensible that something like this can happen to a person during their routine daily commute.

"This attack was entirely unprovoked and it still remains unclear why Loveridge carried it out. However, what is clear is that he is a dangerous individual.

"A second young man was also stabbed that morning, and it is fortunate that his injuries, although terrible, were not life-threatening.

"I expect that Loveridge will be detained for a long period, but Daniel's family will have to live with his loss for far longer."

Police were called shortly after 8am on Tuesday, the 19th of January to reports of an injured man in Kendor Gardens.

Officers, the London Ambulance Service and London's Air Ambulance attended and found Daniel, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

A post-mortem examination held at St George's Hospital in Tooting found the cause of death to be a stab wound.

Daniel was attacked as he walked through Kendor Gardens to a local railway station on his way to work at the London Campus of Coventry University.

Detectives from the Homicide and Major Crime Command launched an investigation and quickly established that another man had been stabbed on nearby Lewis Road approximately 30 minutes before Daniel was murdered.

The 23-year-old man suffered stab wounds to his buttocks and was taken to a south London hospital for treatment.

Loveridge was charged with murder and causing grievous bodily harm two days later.

Three other men were arrested as part of the ongoing investigation.

One of these men was also arrested on suspicion of making a hoax call to police in relation to a third stabbing that he alleged took place on Morden High Street. Officers attended the alleged scene but no victim or evidence that a stabbing had taken place was found.

They were all later released with no further action.
