GIBBON: TV ENGINEER GETS 28 YEARS AFTER CLAIMING HE WAS TOO DEPRESSED TO BE A MURDERER


cnl_gibbon_web.jpgHARROW

A TV engineer who stabbed his next door neighbour to death in 'truly horrifying savagery' in a feud sparked by her son's noisy skateboard was jailed for at least 28 years today (Tues).

Trevor Gibbon, 48, armed himself with two knives and lay in wait for Alison Morrison, 45, the day after she won a restraining order against him.

The executive was walking to work when he dragged her to the ground and stabbed her 40 times in a 'calm and calculated' attack.

Gibbon left the mother-of-one bleeding to death near her home in Harrow, northwest London, but with her dying breath she gasped: 'Trevor Gibbon did this to me'.

The court heard he 'enjoyed' stalking the Morrison family, who he admitted subjecting to a two-and-a-half year harassment campaign.

Gibbon repeatedly sobbed giving evidence in court and claimed his 'mild depression' caused him to kill Mrs Morrison.

SIRRELL:SENTENCE DELAY FOR KILLER WHO PUNCHED BARMAN


SHEERNESS, KENT; SEDGEFIELD, CO DURHAM

A convicted killer who disrupted a comedy night then punched a barman will be sentenced next week.

Former Royal Engineer Alan Sirrell, 47, was jailed for six years in 2003 for beating Patrick Ronan, 61, to death after he danced too close to his young daughters.

The thug was back in court for punching Henry Ward – a barman on the Tattershall Castle bar and dining ship moored at Embankment – in the face last December.

Sirrell - known as Geordie Alan - and his mates were on board the ship to watch a comedy night, but instead stood at the back chatted loudly over the acts.

CENTRAL LONDON

A police officer pressurised five women into signing statements in support of his wife after she was sacked from her job for making fake expenses claims, a misconduct hearing was told.

DC Stuart House allegedly visited colleagues and clients of his wife, Julie Lambe, during his working hours and urged them to sign statements after telling then he was a police officer.

The detective's actions allegedly created the impression he was acting 'in an official police capacity' while aiding his wife's appeal against her dismissal from a recruitment agency.

Four of the five women are also said to have signed official Met MG11 witness statements, despite the employment claim being a civil matter.
