Trevor Timon has been charged with the murder of Oliver Dearlove, pictured with his girlfriend Claire.

Dearlove, from Eltham, was in Blackheath with friends, and they had visited a bar in Montpelier Vale.

The group left the bar and walked down Montpelier Vale, turning right into Tranquil Vale, where they waited the arrival of a pre-booked taxi.

At this stage it is believed that whilst waiting in Tranquil Vale, Dearlove was struck, which caused him to collapse.

A post-mortem examination held at Greenwich Mortuary on Monday gave the provisional cause of death as intracranial haemorrhage. Further tests are ongoing.

Detective Chief Inspector Lee Watling, who is leading the investigation, said: “Our investigating is continuing and we’ve made huge progress in identifying key witnesses and recovering vital CCTV.

“However, if you were in the area that night and saw something that may help our investigation but haven’t yet spoken to us then please call the Incident Room.”

Police are asking people to call the Incident Room on 020 8721 4205 or to remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
