Russell Square has been a hive of police activity since Saturday 15th January when the body of Craig Palmer was discovered at number 43.   Several people who had been occupying the house have been arrested on suspicion of his murder.

The house had been boarded up since September last year.   Previously it belonged to "Ken" Kennar, a founder member of our Society, who died last August and had lived there since 1938.

Society chairman, Roger Hinton commented "Local people have been wondering how long it would be before squatters moved in, but I don't think anyone expected a murder."
