Memorial to Hither Green burglar torn down but…

KENT POLICEPolice dropped all charges against Mr Osborn-Brooks

More flowers left outside the house where a serial burglar was stabbed to death by the elderly occupant have been torn down overnight. "He wasn't a murderer, he wasn't a rapist, they're putting (sic) him as a monster".

He was stabbed after a struggle with pensioner Richard Osborn-Brooks, 78, who was held by police after the incident but released without further charge on Friday.

Local resident Iain Gordon, who said he was from the Fair Society group, pulled down the flowers saying: "If you don't know why I pulled the flowers down then you aren't a human being".

It is the third time the floral tributes left by friends and relatives of Henry Vincent, who had links to Kent, have been removed.

A relative of Vincent described those who tore down the tributes as "scum": "This is the best place for these flowers to be".

Witnesses say they were taken down by a man with a hat pulled low over his eyes around 9.30pm last night.

After the floral tributes appeared, Mr Osborn-Brooks's neighbour Kayleigh Taylor said: 'It is a disgraceful display.' The NHS worker, 23, added: 'It is sad he lost his life but they should not have this display outside the victim's house - they are just antagonising them'. "[It was] inappropriate, and the guy deserves no tribute".

Saverimuthu Augustine, 78, said he was "annoyed" that some flowers had been attached to fences around his house.

Neighbour Theresa Webb said Mr Osborn-Brooks and his wife "might never move back to the area again".

"If it's a normal person it's different, but he went and burgled a house - it could have been my house".

Several police vehicles were parked outside Mr Osborn-Brooks's house on Tuesday, though the pensioner was not there, and officers - some on horses - were seen on the street. "There was 101 bouquets down there".

Vincent's alleged accomplice, Billy Jeeves, 28, is still being sought over the failed burglary, Scotland Yard said.

"The van was found burnt out and destroyed on the evening of Saturday, 7 April in Star Lane, near Hockingdon Lane in Orpington, Kent".

Thousands of pounds has been fundraised online to support the pensioner.

During a struggle in the kitchen, Vincent was stabbed in the upper body. It is unclear what implement delivered the fatal blow.

In January, Mr Jeeves and Mr Vincent were named and pictured by Kent Police in connection with an investigation into a distraction burglary on a man in his 70s.
