Crime in Lavender Hill

A disabled man who found a loaded revolver in a playground was told by officers to carry it two-and-a-half miles to a police station.
John Leary found the weapon, which was linked to a gangland shooting, inside a plastic bag on the Hemans estate in Stockwell, south London .
Disabled Mr Leary, 51, said: 'I was going to hang the bag on the railings until I felt its weight.
'When I looked inside there was a big revolver, a passport and some cash. It had a long barrel and I could see the chambers were loaded. There was no question of leaving it where kids play.'
Immediately after finding the revolver he was confronted by gang members who tried to get him to hand it over. But he refused and called police.
