A man has been jailed for murder following the death of a woman in a fire in Teddington last August

54 year old William Kydd from Feltham, was convicted of the murder of 74-year-old Carole Harrison following a trial at the Old Bailey.

He was sentenced at the same court today today to life imprisonment and will be jailed for a minimum of 30 years.

The court heard that police, the London Fire Brigade and the London Ambulance Service were called to reports of a fire at a residential address in Mays Road at around 1am on August the 18th.

The body of a woman, later identified as Carole Harrison, was found.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

A post-mortem examination gave the cause of death as smoke inhalation and a head injury.

Carole, a mother of five and a former nurse, had lived in Teddington for 46 years, the last 18 of which were on her own since the death of her husband.

A murder investigation was launched after enquiries by LFB concluded that the fire had been started deliberately.

Detectives established that Carole had been seen in the company of a man of scruffy appearance on the day of her murder and shortly before the house was discovered ablaze.

The man was subsequently identified as William Kydd.

Kydd was arrested on suspicion of murder and denied having had any involvement, answering ‘no comment’ to all questions put to him.

He was released on bail.

Detectives continued to work on the investigation and began piecing together evidence of his presence at the scene.

A pathology report in November 2018 stated that Carole had been alive during the fire and had been assaulted shortly before it.

It was established that the fires had been started in four separate areas of the house and that internal doors had been closed; Carole would not have been able to close the doors owing to the arthritis she suffered.

Kydd was further seen on CCTV leaving Carole’s house minutes before the fire was first reported.

Forensic evidence found that Kydd had access to the address on the day in question and that, as a smoker, he had access to some form of ignition in order to smoke his cigarettes.

Mobile phone evidence showed that despite having been in near daily phone contact with Carole prior to her death, he made no attempt to call her after her murder and re-located to another area of London.

Kydd was re-arrested and was charged with murder and remanded in custody.

A 41-year-old man from Epsom has been sentenced to life in jail with a minimum term of 27 years for the murder of his ex-partner in Ewell

39 year old Aliny Mendes died at the roadside following reports of a stabbing near Sparrow Farm Road in February.

Ricardo Godinho was found guilty of her murder and the possession of a bladed article following a two and a half week trial.

Here's DCI Mark Chapman.

In a statement, Aliny’s family said:

“Aliny was a beautiful, intelligent, happy, caring woman who was loved by so many people, both in the UK, and in her home country of Brazil. The events of Friday, the 8th of February took away not only a sister, daughter, grandchild and friend, but more importantly, took a loving mother away from her four small children.

“The impact that Aliny’s death has left on her children is almost impossible to put into words. All four children are under the age of 12 years old and are now left with no mother which is so hard for them to process at such a young age. It’s the small things that will have an impact on their lives growing up.

“When the children are ill their mother will not there to sooth them, when they get good results at school, their mother will not be there to praise them, when they perform in a school play, their mother will not be there to applaud them, and on birthdays, graduations, wedding days and other momentous events, their mother will not be able to share in the celebration and the joy of the occasion.

“The family cannot express enough how our lives have changed and that it’s a daily struggle to not only come to terms with what has happened but to adapt to a new way of life. We are thankful for all the efforts by the criminal justice system but no sentence will ever replace or bring back our beautiful Aliny.”

Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Mark Chapman, from the Specialist Crime Command said: “This deeply tragic incident has left Aliny’s family and friends devastated and our thoughts and sympathies are with them today.

“Aliny was on her way to pick up her children from school when she was confronted and killed by Ricardo. Throughout the investigation we have spoken with many of Aliny’s family and friends and have heard about what a caring person she was with a ‘wonderful heart’. It is clear that Aliny’s priority was her children, whom she had so much love for. We will provide ongoing support to the family.

“The attack took place in broad daylight and continues to have a traumatic effect on those who witnessed it. I would like to thank those who witnessed what happened for their actions in the immediate aftermath of this tragedy, and the wider community for the way they pulled together at such an extremely difficult time. A number of those people have been in court giving evidence, and it is thanks to those brave individuals we have managed to get this verdict today.”

Time is running out to have your say on plans for Kingston’s redevelopment over the next 20 years.

The “New Local Plan” or "Direction of Travel" consultation aims to identify where new houses could be built to cope with a surging population.

But some residents, like Caroline Shah, say the plan opens Kingston and the surrounding areas up to mass over-development.

The consultation finishes on July the 31st and can be found on Kingston council’s website, just search for New Local Plan or click here.

A Kingston Council spokesperson said: "When the council assesses planning applications for new buildings in the borough, legislation requires that we have to determine whether the proposals would accord with the development plan which is effectively the documents that together make up the rules for development in our area.

"For Kingston, the key development plan documents used in decision making are the London Plan and our own Core Strategy document from 2012.

The Direction of Travel is not an adopted document and has not gone through the same process as these development plan documents (DPDs) and therefore it does not have the same weight in the council's decision making on planning applications."

Balham is rewarded for good design.

Balham Town Centre has won an award after a half a million pound refurbishment.

Streets were resurfaced, given better lighting, and space was made for public events.

The large blank wall known as the “ugly wall” was decorated with a mural to represent the area’s Edwardian and art deco past.

The Pineapple Awards from The Design Council seek to reward design excellence and contribution to urban life.

Gang is sentenced for torturing man in Fulham.

A criminal gang of 5 men who dragged a man away from his pregnant girlfriend, beat him and poured acid over him have together been jailed for more than 50 years.

They kidnapped the victim in Maida Vale on the 24th September 2018 and kept him tied up in a bath for 12 hours at the address of one of the gang in Fulham Palace Road.

They demanded payment from the victim’s mother but despite receiving £6,000 they continued to hold him and demanded delivery of a Rolex watch.

The victim was later dumped at the side of the road where he was helped by a passing member of the public.
