I share the shock and anger I know people are feeling following the tragic incident that has occurred on Cayton Road.
Our thoughts are with everyone who knew the victim of this terrible crime, Mr Thomas O'Halloran, who was well known in the area.
Ealing Council is working closely with the police to provide any support we can and we were able to help identify a suspect using our CCTV network. I am pleased to see that the police have now arrested the suspect.
