KENT POLICEPolice dropped all charges against Mr Osborn-Brooks

A man removing a second set of floral tributes from a fence on South Park Crescent in Hither Green.

According to LBC radio, by Wednesday morning the tributes had reappeared for a fourth time.

Flowers, cards and balloons had been left near the home of Richard Osborn-Brooks, 78, after he fatally stabbed Henry Vincent, 37, last week.

"We have used our roads policing unit to target hot spots of crime along with the drugs unit, the regional support unit and the regular units and they all work together and as a team and it has been a good success", said Supt Smart.

Mr Osborn-Brooks was arrested on suspicion of murder and released on bail, but was told on Friday that no action would be taken, the Metropolitan Police said.

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

On Tuesday night a hooded man, who said he came from Hammersmith, West London, was filmed walking off with flowers.

"But I can't say what a mother's or a family's grief is". "But I feel extra for Mr Osborn".

Assistant coroner Sarah Ormond-Walshe told two of his female relatives: "I know you are having a awful time".

He said: "I am annoyed they put them on my fence".

The Met police have released an image of the man alleged to have been Vincent's accomplice in the burglary.

Speaking at the scene on Tuesday, a woman claiming to be Vincent's aunt said the family will "never come back" if the bouquets are left intact.

A fence opposite the home of Richard Osborn-Brooks, 78, has become an unlikely flashpoint of tensions between the grieving family and his neighbours since last week's incident.

Today the battle to keep the tributes away continued as the flowers have been taken up and promptly torn down no less than four times.

Officers want help from the public to find Billy Jeeves, 28, who is said to have links to Orpington and Swanley in Kent and Cambridge.

A witness saw Centeio in the victim's home and then she heard screaming, court records say.

The family, who have identified themselves as Gypsies, said they were being treated differently due to their backgrounds and said they wanted to remember Vincent as a brother, son and friend and "a good man". The nutritional therapist, 43, added: 'Our first thoughts are with Richard and his wife, and to make sure they are being cared for and looked after'.
