A bagel tycoon’s son who killed his mother and sister at the family £2.5million home was given an indefinite hospital order in August.

Joshua Cohen, 28, stabbed his mother Louise Cohen, 64, and his sister Hannah, 33, to death at the family’s mansion in Golders Green.

He then beat his mum over the head with an iron and a meat tenderiser.

Judge Nicholas Hilliard, the Recorder of London, made an indefinite hospital order. He said: “The defendant is suffering from a severe and enduring mental illness, he suffers from paranoid schizophrenia and is residing at Broadmoor specialist hospital, a secure hospital where he will return.”

Yvonne Lawson is the founder and CEO of the Godwin Lawson Foundation, praised a new initiative by the Mayor of London to map out activities available to young people over the summer to try to tackle serious youth violence.

Last week the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, released an interactive map of events for Londoners to stop young people getting caught up in gangs and violence over the summer.

Ms Lawson said: “When we are working in schools, we find a lot of young people don’t know about the activities available to them during the summer holidays.

“Young people want to be outside, but they can’t be outside when there’s nothing positive for them to engage with.”

A surprisingly shallow lake and knee-high mud trapped three men and a baby in a boat.

Dexter Hanoomansingh, his son Anand, their friend and his 18 - month-old baby arrived at Hollow Ponds Boating Lake in Leyton.

They paid the £15 fee and £10 deposit, clambered into the wooden rowing boat and set off for an afternoon’s paddling.

All was well until the boat suddenly juddered to a halt - For close to an hour the three men attempted to heave themselves out of the mud using the oars, but with no luck until they were rescued by passers-by.
