Previous incident

It is the second emergency services call to the road in less than a week. On Tuesday (October 6) police were called to an assault.

Victim 77-year-old Sidney Collier later died of his injuries.

David Harris, 61, of Buenos Ayres, who is believed to have been known to the victim, was arrested and charged with murder. He is next due to appear in court on Thursday 5 November.


  1. I actually live in the “hotel” that the ‘victim’ was in… although I’ve not been staying there! It’s not actually a hotel, it’s an HMO called the palace hotel! The ‘victim’ Has moves in while I’ve been staying away but he is on the floor that my room is on and in the room next to a very good friend (and the person who called the paramedics)
    The ‘victim’ actually spent the day yesterday threatening to kill himself, then stabbed himself in the stomach before calling out for someone to ring an ambulance! He was taken to hospital, the knife was removed without the need for surgery, he managed to avoid all his vital organs and was kept in overnight for observation!
    So this wasn’t a vicious attack, this was a numpty stabbing himself!

    • There are 2 incidents at the hotel. The first involved a victim who died. The second, yesterday, says an injured man was taken to hospital, it does not say he was victim of an assault

      • These were different buildings one was actually a hotel, the incident from yesterday was in an hmo called the palace hotel… it’s not actually a hotel… or a palace!

          • As I said, this wasn’t an assault either, this was someone trying to kill them selves! This was a self inflicted wound, fortunately he was taken to a London hospital where the knife was removed without the need for surgery and the person’s injury wasn’t life threatening as no vital organs were hit. He was kept in overnight for observation and I believe will be released today
