Sudbury boarded an out-of-service bus in Worship Street, Shoreditch, during the day of the attack on August 27, 2022.

The bus driver told Sudbury that it was out of service and asked him to get out, but the 34-year-old attacked the driver instead.

This resulted in the driver being punched, bitten and tackled to the ground.

City of London Police officers arrived to arrest Sudbury – but during the arrest he attempted to punch, kick and headbutt officers.

He managed to kick one officer and bit another during the restraint.

And then while in custody, he continued to be violent and assaulted another two officers.

Sudbury was jailed for two years and seven months.

They made more than 80 false claims across a three-year period. 

But their scam came to light in June 2020 when they tried to leave the UK via the Channel Tunnel. 

Packowska was found to have £50,000 in cash hidden inside her leggings and a further £12,000 inside her handbag. 

When their home was searched officers removed a kitchen kickboard and found a carrier bag containing mobile phones, bank cards and documents linking them to fraudulent activity. 

They were released on bail pending further enquiries but continued to claim for benefits they were not entitled to and were arrested for a second time. 

The pair later pleaded guilty to conspiracy to defraud, possessing articles for use in fraud and possessing criminal property. 

They were each jailed for four years.

Abubakarr ‘Junior’ Jah was 18 when he was killed in April 2021, just four years after his brother Ahmed Deen-Jah was murdered.

Awadh Saleh, 25, of Chesterton Terrace in Plaistow, was sentenced to life with a minimum of 36 years for Junior’s murder.

Rio Burton-Devine, 25, of Burder Close in Hackney, was also sentenced to life with a minimum of 31 years imprisonment.

Det Ch Insp Mark Rogers, senior investigating officer, said: “Junior was murdered just four years after his brother Ahmed and his family have been through unimaginable suffering.

“Junior’s life was suddenly and inexplicably cut short by Saleh and Burton-Devine, who set out that day on a ‘rideout’, intent on carrying out the most brutal act of violence against anyone they believed may be linked to rival gangs.

“They believed they could get away with their crimes but despite the length of time passed, our team never gave up fighting for justice for Junior and his family,” he added.

She managed to run away, leaving behind some of her belongings, and she cried out that she had been raped.

Members of the public came to help the girl and flagged down a passing police car.

As the girl was shocked, she couldn’t remember the address she escaped from but Islam’s phone number was used to trace his address.

The 29-year-old was arrested that same day on suspicion of rape.

Islam was jailed for ten years.

Mungur was living in a luxury £2 million house in Woodford Green when he was first arrested on May 10, 2013. 

The arrest came after Border Force officers found four kilos of cocaine concealed inside a spare tyre as he got off a ferry at Harwich. 

After he was questioned Mungur was bailed pending further enquiries but the following year he disappeared after initially telling officers he was returning to France for medical treatment. 

Two years later, in November 2016, a lorry bound for the UK which was searched at the Calais border was found to contain 45 kilos of cocaine and 25 kilos of heroin, hidden within a pallet containing boxes of hair extensions.

Two of his co-conspirators were jailed for four-and-a-half years each in 2019 but Mungur remained on the run. 

Eventually he was tracked to Madrid Airport in Spain in June last year. 

He has now been jailed for 19 years.
