Boy aged 16 arrested over Mill Hill Shopkeeper murder


A 16-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a shop worker critically injured in an attack died.
The victim, 49, was assaulted outside a convenience shop on The Broadway, Mill Hill, on 6 January. He died in hospital on Monday.
Police said he was attacked after three teenagers were refused items including cigarette papers.

The BBC have the full story on their website.

Local residents have set up a crowdfunding page to assist the family of the victim. Local residents have set up a crowdfunding page to assist the family - https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/rotafamily

There are also plans for a community event on Saturday February 10th to help raise money for the family and to bring the community together. We will publish more details when we have confirmation later.

This is a tragic event. It is also something which is not typical for Mill Hill and the community response shows that we are a community that cares. Although this is the most terrible event, we have the opportunity to ensure that the family have our support and to show that through adversity we can come together.

All of our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time.
