BREAKING: Henry Vincent's family return to Hither Green to REPLACE flowers torn down

The neighbours of Mr Osborn-Brooks have been left angry by the tributes left for Mr Vincent, which included dozens of bunches of flowers.

The flowers for Mr Vincent, 37, had been tied to a fence opposite the home of Mr Osborn-Brook in south-east London. 

Many of the flowers were taken down overnight by angry neighbours. 

Elvina Lee, who said she was Mr Vincent’s first cousin, said to the BBC it was “the best place for these flowers to be”.

Refeering to the people who took down the flowers, she said: “I don’t know what’s wrong with these people”

She said: “He wasn’t a murderer, he wasn’t a rapist, they’re putting him as a monster.”

Mr Osborn-Brooks was held on suspicion of murder at first but has been released with no further action. 

An anonymous vigilante filled himself dismantling the shrine left in the burglar’s memory.

Posting the video on Facebook, he wrote: “When I heard that the family of Henry Vincent had placed flowers on the road where he died, I was extremely furious. 

“So I drove to South London, to the road, and saw the flowers and stuff. I noticed some unlawfully attached onto a fence, which is someone’s private property, so the gentle who owns the house gave me verbal consent to remove. 

“He told me that he was intending on removing the flowers himself tomorrow, but I gladly did it for him voluntarily, after all he was an elderly gentleman himself as well.”
