A man has been found guilty of murdering a 14-year-old boy in a “violent and frenzied” knife attack.
Jaden Moodie was knocked off a moped and repeatedly stabbed in Bickley Road, Leyton, in January.
Ayoub Majdouline, 19, from Wembley, north London, was convicted following a trial at the Old Bailey.
Jurors heard both his DNA and Jaden’s were found on a knife and yellow washing up gloves which had been thrown into a drain.
A jury of eight men and four women also found Majdouline guilty of having an offensive weapon.
Jaden was the youngest murder victim in London this year.
Majdouline was one of five men linked to the stabbing who drove around east London in a stolen Mercedes looking for members of a rival gang to attack on the night of 8 January, the court heard.
The group, linked to drug gang the Mali Boys, had covered their faces and two of them, including Majdouline, wore yellow rubber gloves to avoid being identified, the jury was told.
Once they spotted Jaden, the Mercedes rammed into the teenager and knocked him off his moped before some of the gang members got out of the car and stabbed him while he lay on the ground.
Jaden, who was dealing drugs for rival gang the Beaumont Crew, suffered nine stab wounds and bled to death in the road as the attackers ran back to the car and sped off, the court heard.
Prosecutor Oliver Glasgow QC said: “Fourteen seconds was all it took – Jaden did not stand a chance.”
He told jurors the “cowardly” attack was part of a “shocking wave of gang crime” across London that attracted ever younger people.
Jurors heard the day before the murder, Majdouline was caught on CCTV at a Travelodge hotel in Walthamstow, wearing the same distinctive Nike Air Max trainers he had on during the knife attack on Jaden.
Burnt clothes, including the trainers, were later found in a churchyard not far from the murder scene.
Majdouline admitted dealing drugs for the Mali Boys but denied being present during the fatal attack.
After a troubled up-bringing, the defendant turned to county lines dealing “to survive”, the court was told.
He had been caught with drugs and carrying knives, but despite serving time behind bars, went straight back to dealing.
The jury heard he was identified by the National Crime Agency in 2018 as a victim of “modern slavery”, amid concerns of exploitation by older youths.
Jaden had also been in trouble with police since he was 13.
He was handed a youth conditional caution in March last year after police seized an air-powered pistol, Rambo knife and cannabis during an altercation in Nottingham.
According to agreed facts read to the court, his mother moved her family to east London due to “ongoing issues” with youths.
Jaden’s family said “yes” and appeared emotional in court as Majdouline was convicted.
Following the verdict, Det Ch Insp Dave Hillier, of the Met Police, described it as a “cold-blooded” murder.
He said Majdouline and the other attackers went out with “the clear intention of causing, at the very least, serious harm to someone as they prowled the streets of Leyton looking for their target”.
Jaden’s attackers “tried to destroy any evidence, but they failed, and officers were soon able to link Majdouline to Jaden’s murder”, he said.
He added: “However, our work is not over yet. We know that there were five people in that black Mercedes and we will continue to work until all those responsible for Jaden’s murder are brought to justice.”
Majdouline is due to be sentenced on 18 December.
A man accused of murdering a 14-year-old boy sold drugs for a London gang so he could “survive”, and would carry a knife for “safety”, a court has heard.
Jaden Moodie was knocked off a moped and stabbed to death in Leyton, north-east London, on 8 January.
Ayoub Majdouline, who is accused of being one of five men who carried out the attack, told the Old Bailey he had sold drugs since he was 16 years old.
The 19-year-old, from Wembley, denies murder and possession of a knife.
The court has been told Jaden was selling drugs for the Beaumont Crew, also known as Let’s Get Rich, when he was attacked by a group of men who were looking for a rival gang member to attack.
Jurors heard Mr Majdouline had a troubled upbringing in Leyton and his parents had split up when he was seven.
While living with his mother, he was abused by his stepfather so went to live with his aunt, the court was told.
However, that relationship broke down and he ended up in foster care. His father also died in 2015.
The court was told he had been identified as a victim of modern slavery by the National Crime Agency (NCA) over concerns he was being exploited by older youths.
Giving evidence, Mr Majdouline said he sold drugs “for and with” the Mali Boys gang, including as part of county lines dealing in Basingstoke, Ipswich and Andover.
He told jurors he was previously jailed for drug and knife offences but went straight back to dealing “to survive”
“At the time I did not feel like I was being supported by social services and I never lived by myself before,” he said.
He added that he got “confused” sorting out jobseekers’ allowance when he turned 18 and dealing had been “the only way I knew how to make money”.
Explaining why he carried a knife, Mr Majdouline said he had been “sliced” on one occasion in Basingstoke so carried a blade “for my own safety”.
The trial continues.
Arsenal have identified Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo as a potential replacement for Unai Emery if the Gunners decide to sack the Spaniard.
Head coach Emery is under pressure after a winless run of six matches across all competitions.
Arsenal have only won four of 13 Premier League games this season.
BBC Sport understands that if Emery is sacked and Nuno is allowed to speak to Arsenal, then the Portuguese would be a strong contender to take over.
Emery says he is only focused on “today and tomorrow” as he prepares for his side’s Europa League match at home to Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday.
“My job is to prepare for the match, to show the best performance in front of our supporters,” he said.
His side go into Thursday’s game top of Group F, four points clear of both their German opponents and Standard Liege.
On Sunday, a number of Arsenal fan groups called for “urgent action” over the “state of things” at the club.
“My focus is only today and tomorrow, to do all the things that we have worked on here at the training ground,” Emery added.
“We know our supporters were disappointed by the draw against Southampton, but we have the perfect chance to reconnect with our supporters.
“Our wish is that every supporter tomorrow helps the team, we need them.”
Arsenal are also eight points adrift of the top four and 19 points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool.
Jose Mourinho has been appointed Tottenham manager after the sacking of Mauricio Pochettino on Tuesday.
Former Chelsea and Manchester United boss Mourinho has signed a contract until the end of the 2022-23 season.
“The quality in both the squad and the academy excites me,” said the 56-year-old Portuguese. “Working with these players is what has attracted me.”
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy said: “In Jose we have one of the most successful managers in football.”
Mourinho will hold his first news conference as Tottenham boss at 14:00 GMT on Thursday.
The Portuguese’s basic salary is £8m a year, significantly less than his pay at United, which was around £12m.
Lille coaches Joao Sacramento and Nuno Santos will join his backroom team, the French club have confirmed, while he will also be reunited with fitness coach Carlos Lalin and tactical analyst Giovanni Cerra, who both worked under Mourinho at United.
Tottenham reached the Champions League final last season under Pochettino, but lost 2-0 to Liverpool in Madrid.
The Argentine, who was appointed in May 2014, did not win a trophy in his time in charge of the north London club, with Spurs’ last silverware being the League Cup in 2008.
Levy said Mourinho has “a wealth of experience, can inspire teams and is a great tactician”.
“He has won honours at every club he has coached,” he added. “We believe he will bring energy and belief to the dressing room.”
Mourinho still has a home in London and won three Premier League titles – in 2005, 2006 and 2015 – as well as one FA Cup in two spells at Chelsea.
Having taken over at Manchester United in May 2016, he won the Europa League and Carabao Cup with them in 2017.
Mourinho was sacked by the Old Trafford club in December 2018, with the club 19 points behind league leaders Liverpool, and had not managed another side before joining Spurs.
He has also previously managed Portuguese side Porto, where he won the Champions League in 2004.
At Italian club Inter Milan, Mourinho won a league, cup and Champions League treble in 2010 and was named Fifa’s world coach of the year, while he led Spanish team Real Madrid to the La Liga title in 2012.
He takes over a Spurs side that are without a win in their past five games and have slipped to 14th in the Premier League, 20 points behind leaders Liverpool after just 12 matches.
Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust had said “many fans thought Poch had earned the right” to try to turn around the side’s form and that “there are questions that must be asked of the board”.
Following Mourinho’s appointment, it said it had “concerns about how Jose and our club’s executive board will work together”.
It added: “The club must ensure it does not find itself in the same position in two or three years’ time, and we need to hear from the executive board what the long-term thinking behind this appointment is.”
Mourinho’s first match in charge is a trip to West Ham United on Saturday (12:30 GMT kick-off).
Spurs go to Manchester United on 4 December, and host another of Mourinho’s former teams – Chelsea – on 22 December.
Mourinho has turned down a number of managerial opportunities, including in China, Spain and Portugal, since leaving Old Trafford.
BBC sports editor Dan Roan
Spurs have never hired a manager as expensive or demanding as Mourinho, nor spent the kind of money on players that he became accustomed to at clubs such as Real Madrid and Manchester United.
But Spurs have come a long way in recent years under Pochettino. They have a new £1bn stadium and training ground, and spent four successive seasons in the Champions League.
They now have a European pedigree, and a hugely talented squad.
Mourinho has been out of the game for almost a year but retained a home in London.
His tribulations at Manchester United saw him lose his ‘Special One’ status, but his many achievements in the game still command widespread respect.
City of London regulators tasked with mucking out the financial stables have been making a “shameful” mess of their own, it has emerged.
Financial Conduct Authority staff have been upbraided for leaving their HQ in an “unacceptable” state.
Chief operating officer Georgina Philippou complained of “bad behaviour” including “colleagues defecating on the floor in toilet cubicles”.
Catering and security teams had been verbally abused, she said.
Ms Philippou made the complaints in a letter to the 4,000 employees at the FCA’s Stratford headquarters that was posted on the authority’s intranet.
She said she was “ashamed” at the behaviour of a “minority of colleagues”.
As first reported by the Evening Standard newspaper, she outlined a series of incidents, including:
- Overflowing waste bins
- Cutlery and crockery left in kitchen areas
- People urinating on the floor in the men’s toilets
- Alcohol bottles left in sanitary bins
- Plants and charge cables stolen from desks.
Ms Philippou said: “You may have heard about some of these behaviours already and I’m sure others will come as a shock.
“This kind of behaviour is unacceptable and will not be tolerated here.”
The FCA has been responsible for regulating the conduct of the UK’s financial firms and markets since 2013. It moved from Canary Wharf to its current home in July last year.
An FCA spokesperson said: “There has been a small number of incidents of bad behaviour towards our colleagues and building.
“We have a duty as an employer to highlight this sort of poor behaviour and our senior management are very clear it is simply unacceptable.
“We value all of our staff and it is only right that we call out poor behaviour when we see it. Judging from the feedback we have received on the article, our staff agree.”
Bosses at audit giant KPMG were also forced to warn staff about their conduct at work in 2018.
An email to workers at its Reading office seen by the BBC warned: “We have had some incidents recently where the first floor accessible toilet sink is being used as a toilet, not for urinating.
“This is not the behaviour we expect from KPMG staff.”
A KPMG spokesperson told the BBC: “This was an isolated incident which occurred in one of our offices well over a year ago and was clearly totally unacceptable.
“Where there is behaviour that falls short of the standards we expect we are quick to call it out, as we have done here.”

Saracens have put rugby union “in a very dangerous place” after they were found to breach salary cap rules, says ex-England captain Chris Robshaw.
The Premiership champions face a 35-point deduction and a £5.36m fine after an inquiry into business dealings between owner Nigel Wray and players.
Robshaw said the European champions were “cheating to a certain extent”.
“It’s not great, the game we love is in the world eye and the pinnacle of English rugby is illegal,” he said.
Clubs cannot spend more than £7m on player salaries, although they are allowed two whose wages do not count towards the cap. Teams can also receive extra money for fielding home-grown players or to pay for injury cover.
It is claimed Premiership and European champions Saracens avoided the regulations by investing in companies co-owned by Wray and some of their star players, including England captain Owen Farrell and forwards Mako and Billy Vunipola.
Harlequins captain Robshaw said the game has “some damage control to do” as a result of the investigation.
“It will not be easy for our sport to move forward,” the 33-year-old added.
“We’re a sport that claims to be whiter than white, and we always look down on football, we look down on this and that and say how it is but we are like everyone else.”
The fine and points penalty, which Saracens are appealing, comes 10 years after another hugely controversial moment for the English game when Robshaw’s club, Quins, were embroiled in the Bloodgate scandal.
“As a sport, we have got to take the damage that comes with that now and I’m sure it will be like that for a while,” Robshaw said.
‘I’m confident we are squeaky clean’
Meanwhile, Leicester boss Geordan Murphy says he would now welcome a league-wide review of club accounts.
Asked if he feels there should be an investigation into all Premiership finances, Murphy said: “Yes, I think so.
“What we have seen at Saracens is the result of investigations that have gone on for a little while, but we are all expected to adhere to the same rules.”
The Tigers head coach told BBC East Midlands Today that he was “a little shocked” by the severity of the punishment from Premiership Rugby, but said he could not comment further without “the full facts available”.
He added that Tigers, a club put up for sale to try and ensure they remain a force in the Premiership, would be open to greater financial scrutiny.
“I wouldn’t want to talk about anyone else’s books, but I’m really confident that our books are squeaky clean,” he said.
“Every year we fill out forms and declare our information, so they have been looking into different teams and every team over the course of the last few years.”
Saracens won titles ‘unfairly’
Exeter boss Rob Baxter says Saracens will have won their last two titles unfairly if their appeal against breaching salary cap rules fails.
Baxter’s side lost the 2018 and 2019 Premiership finals to the London club.
“If this is upheld, it’s pretty obvious those titles have been won unfairly,” Exeter’s director of rugby said at this season’s Champions Cup launch in Cardiff, which Sarries avoided attending.
“If you’re asking me would I like to walk into Sandy Park and see three Premiership trophies there, I would love to.
“In reality do I see that happening? No. There are too many other factors that come into play.
“I believe the way we played in the final last year would have beaten any other team in the Premiership.”
The Chiefs were beaten 37-34 in a thrilling final in June as tries by Wales star Liam Williams, Scotland’s Sean Maitland and England’s Jamie George – who have all toured with the British and Irish lions – helped Saracens peg back a 27-16 deficit with 20 minutes to go.
But Baxter says that to suggest that his side would have won the title but for Saracens’ alleged extra financial muscle is not necessarily the case.
“The whole truth is if Saracens had been operating with a different group of players last season they may not have got to the final, and if a different team had been there they might have outperformed us on the day,” he continued.
“It would be ridiculous for me to say they were givens. How many results could have been different in the course of a season and the top four could have been created differently.
“Every one of the games, semi-finals and finals would have been different. To sit here and say ‘we should have been given the title’ is a little bit like a shortcut when the season is what you do as whole.”
‘Elephant in the room now out in the open’
And Baxter believes it is right that investments by club officials in firms that are owned or part-owned by players should count towards the cap.
“We’re supposed to be working within the salary cap to create a level of fairness and competition. That’s what we have signed up to and agreed to,” he added.
“If the first response is to say the payments, investments and inducements are outside the cap but are OK because the wording of the cap doesn’t catch them, the concern is they will move on by finding another way of doing it outside the wording of the salary cap.
“You shouldn’t be paying outside the salary cap and to dress it up in player welfare and developing the game sticks in the craw.
“There can’t be many people within rugby circles who don’t think this is just the elephant in the room finally coming out into the open, instead of being in the corner of the room.”
A survivors’ group has welcomed a report on the Grenfell Tower fire, calling for the government to treat its response as “a national emergency”.
The report, published on Wednesday, followed the first phase of an inquiry, looking at what happened on the night of 14 June 2017, when 72 people died.
It was critical of the London Fire Brigade’s response and said the tower did not meet building regulations.
The LFB said it was “disappointed” by some of the criticism of individuals.
Campaign group Grenfell United said the report showed “the immediate and real dangers” of “highly combustible cladding and insulation”.
“Lives are at risk and the government need to treat this as a national emergency,” the group said.
Some survivors called for senior fire brigade staff to be sacked and prosecuted, accusing the leadership of being “incapable”.
The report concluded:
- “Many more lives” could have been saved if the advice to residents to “stay put” had been abandoned earlier than 02:35 BST
- The cladding surrounding the tower did not comply with building regulations and was the main reason for the fire’s “shocking” spread
- The man whose flat the fire started in bore “no blame” for the disaster and he acted in a “responsible” way
It made 46 recommendations, including improvements in training for fire brigade staff and the development of national guidelines for evacuating high-rise buildings.
Grenfell United called for the recommendations to be implemented in full, saying they would save lives.
But the brigade’s commissioner Dany Cotton said the inquiry had no expert evidence to support its conclusion that lives could have been saved by an evacuation.
The report condemned the brigade for “serious shortcomings” and systemic failures in its response to the fire.
Inquiry chairman Sir Martin Moore-Bick said the absence of a plan to evacuate the tower was a “major omission” by the brigade and more lives could have been saved had the “stay-put” policy been abandoned sooner.
Grenfell United responded: “It is heartbreaking to read that more of our loved ones could have been saved that night if the building was evacuated earlier.”
At an emotional news conference, relatives of 20 victims of the fire called for an overhaul of the brigade, saying its leadership should resign and face prosecution.
Nazanin Aghlani, who lost two family members in the fire, said some firefighters displayed a “serious lack of common sense” and failed to see “what was so vivid in front of them”.
“If a fire happened tonight the same thing would happen again,” she said, adding that the brigade is “in the hands of people that are incapable of their jobs”.
‘Too little too late’
The report said evidence from Ms Cotton that she would not have changed anything about the brigade’s response was “insensitive”.
Ms Cotton said many of the recommendations were welcome and would be “carefully considered”.
She expressed her “deepest sorrow at not being able to save all those who died in the Grenfell Tower fire”.
She added: “We welcome the chairman’s recognition of the courage, commitment and bravery of firefighters on the night, but we are disappointed at some of the criticism of individual staff members who were placed in completely unprecedented circumstances and faced the most unimaginable conditions while trying to save the lives of others.”
However, Natasha Elcock, chairwoman of Grenfell United who was rescued with her six-year-old daughter from the 11th floor, said Dany Cotton’s statement was “too little too late”.
“She stood up in the inquiry, in a room full of bereaved and survivors and said there’s nothing she would do to change that night,” she told the BBC.
“If she’d expressed that sorrow that day in that room, that potentially would have washed with us today.”
Grenfell United expressed concern at the report’s finding that the LFB were “at risk of not learning the lessons from Grenfell”, adding that firefighters were “let down by their training, procedures, equipment and leadership”.
Other issues highlighted in the report included:
- A lack of training in how to “recognise the need for an evacuation or how to organise one”
- Incident commanders “of relatively junior rank” being unable to change strategy
- Control room officers lacking training on when to advise callers to evacuate
- An assumption that crews would reach callers, resulting in “assurances which were not well founded”
- Communication between the control room and those on the ground being “improvised, uncertain and prone to error”
- A lack of an organised way to share information within the control room, meaning officers had “no overall picture of the speed or pattern of fire spread”
In the House of Commons, MPs held a minutes’ silence to remember victims of the fire, before a debate on the inquiry.
Boris Johnson told MPs that survivors and the bereaved had been “overlooked and ignored” before the fire and “shamefully failed” afterwards.
The second phase of the inquiry will focus on wider circumstances of the fire, including the design of the building.
While this was not the focus of the first phase, the report found there was “compelling evidence” external walls of the building failed to comply with building regulations and “actively promoted” the spread of fire.
It said the principal reason the flames shot up the building so fiercely was the combustible aluminium composite material (ACM) cladding with polyethylene cores which acted as a “source of fuel”.
Grenfell United said the second phase of the inquiry “must now focus on where responsibility for the devastating refurbishment [of the building] lies”, with the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, the tenant management organisation and the companies involved facing “serious questions”.
A killer once dubbed one of Britain’s most wanted fugitives has been jailed for at least 26 years.
Shane O’Brien, 31, evaded police for three-and-a-half years after he slashed Josh Hanson’s neck in Hillingdon, west London, on 11 October 2015.
He fled the UK, changed his appearance and moved around Europe before his extradition from Romania in April.
O’Brien, who jurors found guilty of murder last month, was given a life sentence at the Old Bailey.
CCTV released during the trial showed 21-year-old Mr Hanson clutching his neck and stumbling as blood poured out of a 37cm (14.5in) wound.
‘Abrupt, vicious, violent’
After the killing, jurors heard, O’Brien was seen “calmly” walking out of the bar.
He made his way to Ashford, Kent, where a contact had chartered a private four-seater plane to take him to the Netherlands.
The killer grew a beard and long hair and changed his tattoos as he travelled through countries including Germany, Belgium and the Czech Republic, the court was told.
In 2017, the father-of-two was arrested over a dispute in a Prague nightclub but gave police a false name and fled while on bail.
The trial heard the 31-year-old was added to Europol and Interpol’s most wanted lists but still managed to lie low.
However, he was eventually caught by Romanian authorities after he contacted Scotland Yard to arrange a possible meeting, the jury heard.
Sentencing the father-of-two, Judge Nigel Lickley QC called it “a grotesque, violent and totally unnecessary attack on an innocent man”.
“The reason why you behaved in such a way may never be fully explained. You, however, know the reason,” he said.
In a victim impact statement, Mr Hanson’s mother Tracey described her son as being “considerate, kind and generous”.
“He was taken from us in the most horrific way possible – suddenly, abruptly, viciously and violently,” she said.
The victim’s sister, Brooke, said the 21-year-old “was not just my brother, he was my best friend”, and described his “infectious smile” and “magical presence”.
She told the court she had suffered from anxiety and post-traumatic stress since the killing and found herself always wondering if she could have protected him from the “evil” that took him away.
During the trial, O’Brien had claimed he felt threatened by Mr Hanson’s “very aggressive body language” and had only meant to scare his victim.
There were angry shouts of “coward” from the public gallery as he was led away from the dock.
Det Ch Insp Noel McHugh said O’Brien “thought he could evade justice with the help of his ‘associates’ but he was wrong”.
“It is only now, upon sentence, that it’s sinking in… that O’Brien has finally been caught and convicted and will be off the streets, away from society, for a very long time”, he said.
How a killer was caught
- O’Brien’s fingerprints are identified on a cup from the RE Bar and his image is released as part of an appeal
- A woman calls police after spotting the 31-year-old in a bar in Ashford, Kent. He is also later seen on CCTV buying new clothes in Ashford Designer Outlet
- Before officers are able to apprehend him, O’Brien boards a plane to the Netherlands
- Various sightings are reported including some which detectives believe were intended to mislead investigators
- O’Brien is arrested following a scuffle in a Prague nightclub. He gives his name as Enzo Melloncelli and flees while on bail
- However, police receive updated photos of the killer and are able to find new leads such as tracing the barber and tattoo artists who helped change his identity
- Det Ch Insp Noel McHugh receives a call from O’Brien’s “brief” who say the 31-year-old will hand himself in Budapest. The location then changes to Romania and authorities there are able to detain him
A drug dealer has been jailed for stabbing a police officer who tried to apprehend him in a park in Portsmouth.
PC Russell Turner, 56, suffered a collapsed lung after being stabbed twice by Michael Enzanga in February.
Enzanga, 20 was found guilty of causing grievous bodily harm with intent, possession of a knife and drugs offences following a trial in August.
He was jailed for 16 years and ordered serve at least two thirds before consideration for parole.
Prosecutor Dale Sullivan said the case was made more serious because the stabbing took place near to a nursery, and because it was against a police officer.
In an emotional statement, PC Turner told the court on Wednesday he felt anger towards Enzanga for leaving him lying in his “own blood”.
“Most of all I can never forgive him for the upset, pain and emotional trauma he caused my family,” said PC Turner.
‘Thinking all sorts’
“On the day I was stabbed my wife was at home and my sergeant knocked on the door and told her what happened.
“During that half hour car journey her mind was thinking all sorts, wondering if I was going to live.”
A father-of-two, PC Turner was not able to return to work for 10 weeks and has now left Hampshire Constabulary.
During the trial jurors heard how PC Turner was stabbed during a “full-on fight” with Enzanga while investigating reports of drug dealing in Stamshaw Park.
The plain clothes officer got out his warrant card out and identified his colleague PC Clare Parry and himself as police officers when Enzanga tried to run away and the struggle broke out.
‘Hiding under tarpaulin’
PC Parry broke down in tears as she described Enzanga as like a “caged animal fighting for his life”.
After the stabbing, Enzanga fled in the direction of a block of flats but was seen by members of the public and on CCTV carrying a knife before being Tasered by officers.
He was eventually found hiding under a tarpaulin in a back garden with the barbs from the Taser still lodged in his back.
Passing sentence, Judge Roger Hetherington told Enzanga: “You were no innocent dupe. You were already an experienced criminal who knew exactly what you were about.”
Speaking after the sentencing, Det Insp Matthew Barcraft-Barnes said: “Enzanga’s brutal actions that day could have easily caused the death of our officer.
“As young children watched on, he didn’t think twice about using his knife, all he cared about was his escape, no matter what the consequences were for anyone else.
“It is never easy to have to deal with a case when one of our colleagues is seriously injured for simply doing their job, but the team showed great professionalism and dedication to ensure this dangerous man was taken off of our streets.”
Enzanga, of Ashfield Road, Tottenham, was also convicted of four charges of possessing crack cocaine and diamorphine (heroin) with intent to supply, and a charge of possessing criminal property in the form of £1,000 in cash.
