A taxi driver today (mon) described the terrifying moment he was bound, gagged and beaten by the gang accused of kicking a gambler to death for his winnings in the 'honey trap' murder.

Kyrron Jackson and Nicholas Chandler, both 28, allegedly killed 56-year-old Mehmet Hassan at his home after he was seduced by glamorous care worker Leonie Granger, 25.

Film footage found on Granger's phone showed all three smiling and laughing while handling wads of £50 notes stolen from Mr Hassan in the early hours of 24 March last year.

Jackson and Chandler are said to have robbed the Grosvenor Casino in South Kensington of just over £10,000 two months earlier on 12 January.

A young mum caught with an arsenal of guns and ammunition walked free today (mon) after insisting she unwittingly looked after the cache in return for the loan of a Maserati.

Bianca Willoughby, 27, was found sat next to her four-year-old son in her Honda Civic when armed officers swooped in Hemel Hempstead, in Herts.

Babs Arogundade, 28, was about to select weapons from the stash, which included four shotguns, a loaded Smith and Wesson handgun and a Winchester rifle, the Old Bailey heard.

Willoughby said Arogundade had asked her to look after the bags after he lent her friend his Maserati for a wedding - but insisted she did not know what was inside them.

WELLS:DETAINEES HURLED URINE AND SEMEN AT SECURITY STAFF


SLOUGH, BERKS; CROYDON, WEST NORWOOD, SOUTH LONDON

Detainees at Colnbrook immigration centre regularly hurled urine and semen at security staff but it was never officially recorded, a court heard today (MON).

Officers were also suspected of supplying drugs to inmates but nobody was ever disciplined or sacked as a result of the allegations, jurors were told.

The claims were made at the trial of Serco guard Mark Blake, 42, for selling £8,000 worth of stories to the Sun while working at Colnbrook between November 2006 and December 2010.

Blake claims he was leaking stories to Sun journalist Tom Wells, 34, to expose wrongdoing at Colnbrook, a secure centre near to Heathrow Airport for detainees awaiting deportation.
