A Harrow man was sentenced for his involvement in a car race which saw a 21-year-old student killed.

William Spicer, of Somervell, was racing against Farid Reza in Kingston, where they reached speeds of 70mph in 30mph zones.

Reza’s BMW struck Kingston University student Hina Shamin as she was crossing the road on the way to the library, killing her instantly.

Spicer was given nine penalty points, a £1,000 fine and ordered to pay £500 in costs after being found guilty of careless driving.

A school brought children and adults together with a special Minecraft-themed writing event.

The experience, hosted by St John’s Church of England Primary School in Stanmore, gave dads and carers the opportunity to get creative and spend time with their sons.

And Harrow Council leader Sachin Shah was among those to ‘go behind bars’ in aid of St Luke’s Hospice.

The ‘Jail and Bail’ event set bail prices for the ‘prisoners’, with the councillor fetching £1,000 for the charity.
