RIP Paul Rowe

Many of you may have seen the little shrine of candles and flowers outside the Toad's Mouth cafe on the corner of Brockley Rd and Coulgate St. This is to commemorate the death of local motorcyclist Paul Rowe, 44, who (as previously noted on an earlier BC comments thread) was killed there a couple of weeks ago in a collision with a car.

According to Transpontine, Mr Rowe was "a father of four children ... a presenter on Genesis FM known as DJ Shinehead, and involved with the Saxon reggae sound system, run by his brother Dennis. He went to Kelvin Grove Primary School and Roger Manwood secondary."

A female motorist has been arrested and bailed, and police have put up notices on Brockley Rd appealing for any information witnesses might be able to provide. If you know anything, please call them on 020 8285 1574.

In commenting on this thread, please note that we will be particularly picky about what you're allowed to say due to the possibility of future legal proceedings.
