Lewisham police lied re CCTV -2

Continued from https://asblewishame.wordpress.com/2015/03/11/lewisham-police-lied-re-cctv-1/

Lewisham police and their partner Lewisham Council have both knowingly told the self-same lie about the CCTV evidence, saying CCTV had been in place but didn’t support my ‘allegations’ but both knew the footage hadn’t even been retrieved.

Their lie has been told to my MP, it was told in an MG11 and Case Summary to maliciously prosecute me, it was used to maliciously refer me to mental health services, it was even repeated to me by the IPCC in their letter refusing my complaint Appeal, and still in 2013 it was being repeated in Lewisham police records to discredit me –

so here is more proof that Lewisham police were deliberatly lying because they knew the footage hadn’t been retrieved – by this time, March 2011, over forty incidents had been suffered/reported –

2 1

There was a witness to this incident when I was repeatedly threatened with violence/death but Lewisham police kept delaying trying to speak to them and never actually did – and I have to put up with Lewisham police telling everyone there was no evidence.

Email below from PC722PL Wren, saying he’ll ask for the CCTV himself if Lewisham Council don’t reply to me…

2 2

Email below dated 20/03/11 is me asking PC 722PL Wren to meet with me re all the threats and harassment and to view the CCTV footage of several incidents including threats of violence on 02/3/11 and 04/03/11…

2 3

The meeting I requested in the above email never happened.

On 16/04/11 Pc722PL Wren told me he had viewed the CCTV but there were no incidents on the footage, this was shocking and I sent him the following email saying he cannot have viewed the footage for the several dates/times I had listed for him, that it was completely unacceptable, that this needed investigating and asking for his urgent advice on how to proceed…

2 4

On 17/04/11 Pc722PL Wren replied as below and I then spoke to him and asked him to tell me the dates/times on the CCTV he had watched, he said he didn’t know (!) and would ask Lewisham Council and then sent me the email below…

Dear xxxxxxx,

I will (as you can see above) forward this to Lisa who has control of the CCTV. I will await a response from Lisa and I will view anything that she gives me and of course act upon it.

Chris Wren 722PL

I didn’t know at the time but a few months later I discovered that Lewisham Council had replied to Pc722PL Wren on 27/04/11, telling him the footage he had watched was the only CCTV they had – and that wasn’t the only email between them, behind my back they were mocking me and I’ll post those emails another time…

Dear Pc Wren

Wondered if Lisa has advised you of the dates/times of the footage you viewed, if not would be grateful if you could send another email to her…

He then claimed he hadn’t had a response from Lewisham Council – but he had, as above on 27/04/11 Lisa Spall had told him “this is the only CCTV we have“.

I  do feel one can reasonably expect a police officer to be concerned when CCTV evidence is repeately ‘lost’, particularly perhaps when the footage relates to incidents against a repeat victim since 2009 – but not PC722PL Wren, he chose to lie to me about it –

Finally, Lewisham Council cc an email to me about the missing CCTV – ah…no…no answers about the dates of the CCTV they did have, not letting me know about all the ‘lost’ CCTV – well they wouldn’t want to treat me with any dignity or respect would they…

Hi Chris,

The Footage will have a date the container ( which you still have) , By the way can you pls get them back to me ASAP

Sorry about delaying reply but I thought Id already replied.
Lisa Spall

So, after three months of repeatedly asking I still couldn’t get any answers from Pc722PL Wren or Lewisham Council – and this was how it always was, they were just stringing me along all the time – but I tried again…

Apologies there seems to be a slight miss communication. I have already emailed Lisa informing her that the disc was in the front office at PD ready for her collection. I did this after I viewed it some time ago. I emailed her again last week and hopefully she now has it. If its still in the safe Ill grab it and let you know.


I had to give up, I sent an email to PC722PL Wren telling him this –

Dear Pc Wren

Thank you for your email; I still to this day have not been advised of these details.

I have, therefore, had to give up – it is just too tiring, stressful and upsetting to keep trying but never getting the information despite all my repeated efforts since December 2010/January 2011 to ensure the footage of incidents I reported was obtained, and to try to find out whether or not this footage had been obtained.

Also, despite my repeated efforts to be informed of the dates and times of the footage you viewed on 12/04/11 – as our emails below – information which was needed to establish why, from what you told me, you had not viewed any of the incidents I reported and to try to obtain the correct footage.

PC722PL Wren’s response – concern a repeat victim felt like/had been treated like this? concern lots of CCTV evidence of incidents had been ‘lost’?  sorry he hadn’t bothered to note the dates/times of footage he’d viewed? prompted to take some action?

You can (hopefully) see that every request re the CCTV I’ve forwarded to Lisa who is the owner of it…

I eventually gleaned that the footage he had viewed was the “poor quality”/”very poor quality” footage for 03/01/11…

and the footage for 01/01/11…

which was a date I had not reported any incident but Lewisham Council had inexplicably collected footage – see https://asblewishame.wordpress.com/2014/12/02/lies-of-lewisham-police-5/

and PC722PL Wren knew I hadn’t reported an incident on 01/01/11 because I’d listed dates of incidents for him in my email 20 March 2011 (as above).

As the previous posts and above prove, PC722PL Wren was fully aware he had seen only “poor quality”/”very poor quality” footage for one incident of all those I had reported during this time…

and he knew very well that all the other CCTV evidence had been ‘lost’…

yet he subsequently maliciously arrested me and to discredit me he deliberately lied in an MG11 and Case Summary about the evidence, telling the same lie as Lewisham Council that ‘CCTV had been installed but didn’t support her allegations’ although he was fully aware the CCTV footage hadn’t even been retrieved.

There are names for people who lie and deceive like PC722PL Wren – ‘policeman’ should NOT be one of them.






Lewisham police lied re CCTV -1

Re all the ‘lost’ Lewisham Council CCTV evidence and that Lewisham police knew full well it was ‘lost’ but kept lying about it to discredit me and cover-up their failures to take action.

Information relevant to the following on these links –

Lewisham police refused to collect CCTV evidence and their lies stated by IPCC when refusing my Appeal



Summary re Lewisham Council ‘lost’ CCTV


For the record I would not have posted the evidence Lewisham Council kept ‘losing’ the CCTV as the Local Government Ombudsman had properly investigated – the LGO report 06/12/12 states

“The Council had not gathered any independent evidence…this was not because there was no evidence, but because the Council failed to collect what was available.”

However, as the Metropolitan Police Service has covered-up my complaints I am posting the following to prove Lewisham police knew Lewisham Council ‘lost’ all this CCTV but knowingly and deliberately lied about it, to discredit me and cover-up their failures/refusals to act.

The following proves both Lewisham Police and Lewisham Council knew full well re ‘lost’ evidence of incidents…yet both told the self-same lie about it…so the only reasonable conclusion is that they must have colluded to tell the same lie.

Their CCTV evidence lie goes like this with very slight variations ‘CCTV has been installed but doesn’t support her allegations’ –

although it is true that CCTV has been in place the big fat lie is that it didn’t support my allegations…

the truth, as they both knew full well, was that CCTV had been installed but they refused/failed to retrieve the footage.


This deliberate lying about evidence has, as of course intended, ‘justified’ them taking no action AND completely damaged my credibility to others –

their lie has been told to my MP, it was told in an MG11 and Case Summary to maliciously prosecute me, it was used to maliciously refer me to mental health services, it was even repeated to me by the IPCC in their letter refusing my complaint Appeal, and still in 2013 it was being repeated in Lewisham police records to discredit me .


Lewisham Council CCTV 18/10/10 – 20/12/10

On 18/10/10, after I made my complaint to Lewisham Council, they installed an overt camera on the lamp-post opposite – but it was not working properly all the time it was in place so there was no footage of all the incidents I had reported during this time in the belief the camera was working properly.

It is notable that the incidents continued while that overt camera was in place, clearly visible, as if the perpetrators knew the camera was not working.

Proof re this:- extract from Lewisham Council replies to the Local Government Ombudsman in June 2011 – I’d said to the LGO the overt camera hadn’t worked all the time it was installed from October to December 2010 and I have emails re my requests in November for LBL to retrieve footage –

… I see from your email you say your Inspector has spoken to Gary Connors, was this about the footage from the camera (which I thought you were going to speak to him about)?

…you might recall I asked about this footage being checked regarding the latest harassment incidents…have you been able to view the footage of the incidents yet?


On 21/12/10 the overt camera was removed and Lewisham Council installed two covert cameras in my front bedroom.

Council covert CCTV 21/12/10 – June 2011

During all this period the Council retrieved footage for only one incident I reported ie 03/01/11…they themselves described the footage as “poor quality” and I have an audio recording of them describing it as “very poor quality” (see ‘Summary’ link near top of this post)…this “very poor quality” footage was seen by Lewisham police, it’s the one piece of Council footage for an incident I reported they ever viewed.

Extract from Lewisham Council replies to the Local Government Ombudsman June 2011



[NB At the time I contacted the LGO re the missing CCTV 04 March 2011 I didn’t know it had been ‘lost’.]



The next post will prove that Lewisham police also knew about the ‘lost’ CCTV for this period including for the incident on 04 March 2011 – and that I asked them to investigate re all this ‘lost’ CCTV but I was fobbed off and lied to about it.

For Sgt Biddle

Summary of my complaints for Sgt Biddle –

no lessons have been learnt by the Metropolitan Police Service or the IPCC and no-one cares about that nor about serious misconduct by Lewisham police officers, including knowingly lying in an MG11 and perverting the course of justice.

Until the serious issues are properly investigated it is impossible to have any trust or confidence in Lewisham police and that they won’t just treat me exactly the same as they did for years – if no-one cares they did it before then how could anyone believe they would care in the future.

The incidents started June 2009 when criminal family well known to Lewisham police moved in next door

I first started reporting the incidents to Lewisham police 20 December 2009 and had suffered and reported over 80 incidents by May 2013 – after which I was forced to stop reporting incidents because Lewisham police refused to go through my evidence with me to build a case, they wanted me to start from point-zero – which is where we had always been from 20/12/09 – so it was clear no enforcement action would ever be taken to protect me and my property.   I have many of documents etc proving their lies.

Throughout, neighbours were also reporting incidents by the same perpetrators, proof on this link –


Lewisham police had been covering-up their refusals to take appropriate action by lying to me and about me and about the situation, incidents and evidence – even maliciously arresting me and forcing me out of my home for two months –

at the trial, at which I had to represent myself, the case was stopped half-way through the prosecution case and the District Judge ruled I had “No case to answer” due to the “inconsisencies”/”conflicting police evidence” – CPS letter confirming this –


First complaint – 10 October 2011

See link for examples of incidents reported between 20/12/09 and 28/10/11, Pc Wren, SNT, stated they were “very low level ASB at best”…


PS Elizabeth Gibbs, from the MPS Professional Standards Dept, refused to meet with me to discuss my complaint and see my evidence, this despite my repeated requests for her to do so.

I was blamed for her not meeting with me but it was blatantly unfair, not to mention entirely against the IPCC Statutory Guidance…

on one occasion – at a time which PS Gibbs knew was an extremely stressful time for me, eg she knew:

– I had by then suffered/reported over 60 incidents since 20 December 2009

– it was just a few days after the Trial at which I had to represent myself – although the District Judge ruled I had “No case to answer” due to “inconsistencies” in the police evidence it had still been extremely stressful for me

– I still hadn’t returned home properly having been forced out of my home for the two months before the Trial because of bail conditions imposed because of the malicious lies by Pc Wren

– while I was bailed away from my home the front window of my home had been smashed and items in my back garden had also been smashed/broken –

I had not telephoned her by the day I had said I would, to arrange to meet.  I had not even missed a meeting, just one telephone call.

Without trying to contact me to find out why I had not called, or if I was ok given the circumstances, the very next working day she sent a letter saying she was sorry I was unable to tell her a venue where we could meet and she had done most of her investigation and felt she could finish it without meeting with me.

When I received her letter I telephoned and explained why I had not been able to call and said I did want to meet with her and wanted to show her my evidence – but she just refused.

PS Gibbs had met with those I had complained about – and even with Lewisham Council! – but then refused to meet with me, the complainant, to discuss and see my evidence.

Unsurprisingly then, her ‘investigation’ fully exonerated the police and her report was full of false information and the officers’ lies, serious misconduct was not investigated at all and she referred to an absolutely crucial point which at the very least fully supported, if not actually proved, the arrest/prosecution were malicious, but she completely failed to address the issue.

When I Appealed to the IPCC they did not uphold my Appeal and said I had not co-operated with the investigator – yes, because on one occasion, at a time of immense stress, I had not telephoned by the day I said I would the IPCC said I had not co-operated.

Not only am I certain any reasonable person would agree that is completely unreasonable and unfair, it was also against the IPCC’s own Statutory Guidance eg must follow all available lines of enquiry, need to make efforts to contact complainants even if they haven’t contacted investigator –   http://www.ipcc.gov.uk/Documents/statutoryguidance/2010_statutory_guidance_english.pdf

The IPCC letter refusing my Appeal also made entirely false claims which completely misrepresented the true situation and me, see https://asblewishame.wordpress.com/2014/10/

Second complaint -Jan 2012

In November 2011 it transpired that on 31 October 2011- which was two days after the Trial (28/10/11) at which I’d represented myself and the outcome was “No case to answer” due to “inconsistencies” in the police evidence and three weeks after I had made my complaint (10/10/11) against Lewisham police – PS Duncan Anderson, of the same Safer Neighbourhood Team as PC Wren, had made a referral to a mental health team about me falsely claiming I was “mentally ill” and suffering “delusions” incidents were happening.

Not only was there lots of evidence incidents were happening but the referral was made around six weeks after my front window was smashed (Sept 2011)…which was reported by the same SNT and clearly wasn’t a “delusion” and was evidence incidents were happening.

Having obtained (via the Data Protection Act) a copy of that referral I was compelled to make a complaint to correct the malicious, false and damaging claims against me.

I asked for this to be investigated off-borough but my request was refused – and lo-and-behold the officer who ‘investigated’ my complaint – Inspector Brighouse – was the Inspector for the same SNT I was complaining about.

Despite it had been made very clear that I wanted to meet with the investigator to show them my evidence, Inspector Brighouse did his ‘investigation’ without making any contact with me at all – so again this was unfair, unreasonable and biased, I am certain no reasonable person would think it fair to meet with those complained about but not meet with the complainant/see their evidence.

The Inspector’s entirely biased ‘investigation’ completely exonerated PS Anderson – all the easily available evidence the referral was clearly malicious was conveniently ignored eg

– there was plenty of evidence incidents had happened including eg officers’ reports re my car repeatedly vandalized

– and my front window had been smashed six weeks before PS Anderson did his referral claiming I was mentally ill and suffering delusions incidents were happening

– on 31 August 2011, ie two months before the referral, PS Anderson had attended a meeting at which it was stated that i) there was a software fault with the Council CCTV in my home, and ii) it was proposed to put the perpetrators on another FIP (why would they do that if I was mentally ill and suffering delusions incidents were happening?).  It was PS Anderson who had written the minutes of this meeting!

– bearing in mind the above it makes no sense that Inspector Brighouse claimed it was at that self-same meeting on 31/08/11 that ‘genuine concerns’ were raised about my mental health so it was right for PS Anderson to do the referral claiming I was mentally ill and suffering delusions incidents were happening –

AND Insp Brighouse ignored that, then, despite this claimed genuine concern on 31/08/11 that I was mentally ill and suffering delusions, PS Anderson waited until 31/10/11, ie two months, before bothering to make the referral…yet IF there were any such genuine concerns surely waiting two months before bothering to do a referral would be neglect of duty

– had Inspector Brighouse not denied me the opportunity to present my evidence I would have also shown him documents proving the SNT were fully aware of their refusal to collect CCTV & were fully aware all the ‘lost’ Council CCTV but had been lying about it.

The IPCC refused my Appeal even though the claims simply made no sense, and anyway the ‘investigation’ was obviously unfair and biased and against their own Statutory Guidance – http://www.ipcc.gov.uk/Documents/statutoryguidance/2010_statutory_guidance_english.pdf .

Third complaint – January 2013

I made this further complaint out of desperation because incidents were still continuing and the situation was just carrying on as it had since December 2009 – if my previous complaints been properly investigated Lewisham police would not have been able to continue to treat me as they had and do nothing.

This complaint was ‘investigated’ by AI Chalmers – he said I could send him all my evidence to support my complaint – a massive task, there is so much of it – and stated that –

“There is no requirement for me to meet with you and I believe that this would not be appropriate in the circumstances.

His email did not explain WHY it “would not be appropriate in the circumstances” to meet with me to view and discuss my evidence nor what are those “circumstances”.

Without any contact with me at all and without seeing any of my evidence, the investigator – despite being in the Lewisham ‘Professionalism Unit’ –  had clearly already formed a very negative, hostile opinion against me…

he subsequently claimed he knew better than I did the best way for me to be able to make my complaint…

and then in his report he made the entirely fictitious claim I had previously said officers did not understand me,  so he believed it was best to have it all in writing…that is a lie, I’ve never said they don’t understand me…

and in his report he also made the entirely fictitious claim “she also takes great pains to stress she is being targeted due to her mental vulnerability” – that is another lie, I have never said that is why the criminal family and their associates targeted me.

This was the THIRD time the MPS refused to meet with me to discuss a complaint and discuss my evidence – this is so obviously unfair, unreasonable and biased, clearly something is very wrong with how I was treated…and seriously wrong with the MPS complaints system.

Although I explained to AI Chalmers it was too difficult for me to send him all my evidence/explain it all in writing, he insisted he knew better than I did the best way for me to make my complaint – as he was wrong I was seriously disadvantaged.

There is so much wrong information with AI Chalmers’ ‘investigation’ and in his report it would take several pages to explain but, for example:

– part of this complaint was that officers had been falsely recording incidents on the police computer but AI Chalmers did not investigate that serious aspect at all

– he conveniently ignored information within the audio recordings I’d sent him of officers’ visits eg I had reported via 101 that another condom had been thrown into my back garden, on my audio recording I’d sent to AI Chalmers the officers who visited can clearly be heard confirming  had seen the condom…but conveniently did not mention it at all in their report of their visit, these were the officers who insisted to me I was depressed and needed tablets and counselling,

– he ignored the incident in February 2012 when, yet again, I was repeatedly threatened with violence…and that I’d explained there was CCTV of this incident, that I’d told the officers this but the incident was closed the same day and they had not bothered to view the CCTV

– he states the incident 11/04/13 – as the pictures below, these two thrown into my back garden the day after an egg was smashed against the glass of my shed – was “A BBQ sauce sachet was left on the fence”

bags 1bags 2

– he ignored that L&Q (landlord of relatives of perpetrators next door) could hear abuse on audio recording but police who visited stated no abuse at all could be heard,

– he had asked me to send him details of the incidents during the period for this complaint, which it took me a great deal of energy and time to do, but then he completely ignored everything I said and from his report it is clear he had made no attempt at all to cross-check/investigate

– he dealt with my complaint as a service issue when, according to an IPCC ‘Learning the Lessons’ bulletin, it should have been dealt with as individual officers’ misconduct

– he ignored that the ‘ASB Minimum Standards’ was not being adhered to, he clearly hasn’t learnt any lessons as regards the corrosive and devastating effect repeat incidents have, he ignored that every incident was being treated in isolation, and he is apparently unaware of police powers re ASB

– he claims to believe I am mentally ill because my voice changes while I’m talking to officers…being upset, frustrated and tearful after over three years and around 70 incidents is, according to him, mental illness

– he says officers couldn’t understand why I was reporting as ‘hate’ but I’d very clearly explained why as audio recording proves,

– he said in his report he would be considering what actions could have been taken at the time but ignored that all his recommendations for future action could very easily have been done at the time

– he claimed that the reason no-one ever contacted me again after each visit for every incident – despite the audio recordings proved I was told I would be contacted, and despite the Risk assessment form showing me as ‘high risk’ – was “the sheer size of the organisation and the inherent difficulty of securing a reliable means for individual officers to be contacted”…

yes, according to AI Chalmers the Metropolitan Police Service was incapable of ensuring a high risk repeat victim was contacted as they had been told they would be, a shocking state of affairs IF true…

he also claims the Metropolitan Police Service lacked “a readily accessible system to identify apparent victims of ASB accessible by all officers”, although 101 either always asked if I was a repeat victim or I told them and my audio recordings prove I always told the officers who visited of the long history etc.

– he refers to my “assertions such as lying about the existence of cctv or lack of, allegations of officers lying about their investigations etc.” and, unbelievably, says he “can find no evidence to support this assertion”which is astonishing because there is so much of it…

there are the examples above eg re the condom and the incident when I was threatened with violence but officers closed the incident without viewing the CCTV evidence

I’ve already posted re Lewisham police refusing to collect CCTV https://asblewishame.wordpress.com/2014/10/01/the-lies-of-lewisham-police-part-2/

and I’ve posted the proof re Lewisham Council ‘losing’ the CCTV evidence https://asblewishame.wordpress.com/2014/12/

I will be posting soon the other evidence which AI Chalmers claims he could not find, the proof  Lewisham police were knowingly lying about the CCTV evidence.

There is much more such nonsense in his report, too much to list here.

The IPCC refused my Appeal despite I went to great effort to explain in detail so they could not just ‘miss’ crucial points – but as they could not miss them they came up with astonishing, shocking, claims instead, most notably that the principles of their Fiona Pilkington report findings applied only to that case


and although I’d pointed out to them that lessons should have been learnt, the IPCC denied that any lessons should have been learnt from their report

and although I pointed out to them that, aside from anything else, the principle of their finding that

“aside from the family’s vulnerability, Fiona was a member of a local community who was reporting incidents of crime and anti-social behaviour and simply asking police to carry out their responsibilities, which they failed to do”

must apply to other cases and that I was a member of a local community who was reporting incidents of crime and ASB – over eighty incidents suffered/reported between December 2009 and May 2013, and throughout neighbours were also reporting incidents – and I was simply asking Lewisham police to carry out their responsibilities which they had failed to do…

and that the IPCC had stated (same link as above) “It is vital that the police take anti social behaviour and harassment seriously, listen to the concerns of the victims and take appropriate action.” –

still the IPCC insisted their finding applied only to that case.

So, many years after ASB and harassment legislation was introduced, victims just left to suffer, no lessons learnt by the Metropolitan Police Service or the IPCC.

Lies of Lewisham Police – 5

To prove regarding the lies about the CCTV as explained in Part 4

I first need to prove that Lewisham Council did ‘lose’ all that CCTV footage of incidents I reported –
bear in mind that there was always at least one Lewisham Council CCTV camera in place between October 2010 and March 2012…you can see though that Lewisham Council retrieved only two pieces of footage for incidents I reported during that time

1) Document by Lewisham Council dated 29/06/11 provided to me by Local Government Ombudsman – you can see:

Lewisham Council had two disks – one was for 01/01/11 the other was for 03/01/11

I have circled in red two important pieces of information

– they knew I had NOT reported any incident on 01/01/11

– they admit the footage for 03/01/11 is “poor quality”…I also have an audio recording of them admitting the footage was “very poor quality”

jr cctv list 1

2) In 2012 I asked Lewisham Council to send me a list of all the CCTV they had retrieved for incidents I had reported, on 07/06/12 they sent me a list (pasted below) showing five dates…however –

Date 01/01/2011
as the above extract, I had NOT reported any incident on this date

Date 03/01/2011
This was the first of only two pieces of footage Lewisham Council ever retrieved for incidents I reported, they themselves described the footage as “poor quality” and “very poor quality”

Date 21/08/11

I had NOT reported any incident on this date (as can be checked by MPS/IPCC via the list of incidents I emailed to a PCSO on 28/08/11)

Date 13/01/2012
This was NOT footage of an incident I reported, a (nice) neighbour had been burgled and to try to help I asked Lewisham Council to get the footage for the police, the neighbour subsequently told me the police said the footage was “too poor quality to be of any use”.
Date 05/02/2012
This was the second of the only two pieces of footage for incidents I reported ever retrieved by Lewisham Council – they refer to this incident as “snowball incident”, however, this was the incident when known thug trespassed on my property, coming down my path repeatedly threatening to punch me – ie put me in fear of immediate violence, which is assault.
Lewisham Council completely ignored everything I reported about this incident, then they told blatant, appalling lies about what the CCTV footage showed, to cut a long story short in May 2012 I viewed the footage with them and it did NOT show what they claimed –

despite they knew I entirely disputed their claims as to what it showed – this in writing and my audio recording of the viewing proves I said to them their claims are ”pure fiction” – shortly after the viewing they destroyed the footage, this without asking me and before it could be viewed by the Local Government Ombudsman or anyone independent.

Lewisham police refused to obtain/view the CCTV footage despite I repeatedly told them about the threats of violence and that there was CCTV of the incident and asked them to get the footage.

jr cctv list3

So, between October 2010 and October 2011 – the latter being the end of the period being ‘investigated by PS Gibbs of the MPS Dept of Professional Standards – of all the incidents I reported Lewisham Council retreived only one relevant piece of footage  – 03/01/11 which was “very poor quality”.

I have documents proving that Lewisham police knew this full well but knowingly and deliberately lied and I’ll post them soon.

Lewisham Council continued to ‘lose’ footage after October 2011, as the above proves they retrieved only one other piece of footage – 05/02/12 which they lied about, I disputed, and they destroyed before the footage could be viewed by the LGO or anyone independent.

Lewisham police refused to obtain or view the footage for the incident on 05/02/12 when I was, yet again, repeatedly threatened with violence ie assaulted.

Lies of Lewisham police – part 4

As well as the IPCC stating entirely false information regarding neighbours – see https://asblewishame.wordpress.com/2014/10/13/more-lies-part-3/– the IPCC also stated entirely false information regarding CCTV.

The IPCC stated in their letter –

The fact that there were no arrests is due to a lack of evidence. CCTV cameras were installed in Mx xxxxx’s home in an attempt to capture incidents of anti-social behaviour and criminal behaviour but despite this, no evidence of any offences were captured

That, though, is entirely false – there are many documents proving that Lewisham police knew very well it was NOT that CCTV did not capture incidents, the truth was the CCTV footage of incidents had not been retrieved…

so why did the IPCC stated this entirely false information about the CCTV evidence, which completely misrepresented me and the true situation?

There can be only three possible explanations –

i) Lewisham police knowingly lied to PS Gibbs, Department of Professional Standards, and her investigation was so poor, so totally inadequate, so lacking in any meaningful investigation, that she failed to discover all the evidence proving the truth


ii) PS Gibbs knew the truth about the CCTV but she passed entirely false information to the IPCC


iii) PS Gibbs had properly informed the IPCC the truth about the CCTV but the IPCC decided to just make up a whopping great lie…

and, by some unimaginably incredible coincidence, the IPCC just happened to make up the very self-same lie that Lewisham police and Lewisham Council had both been knowingly and deliberately telling to discredit me and cover-up.

As there are so many documents proving about the ‘lost’ CCTV and that Lewisham police knew the truth but lied, I will have to upload them (soon) on a separate post – for now, below is a summary re the  CCTV.

NB as this post is regarding the IPCC stating entirely false information about the CCTV, the below covers only the period for which PS Gibbs of the Metropolitan Police Service was ‘investigating’ ie 20 December 2009 to October 2011. CCTV was also ‘lost’ after this, I’ll post about that, and the continuing lies, another time.

MPS Covert CCTV – c.20March 2010 to 30 April 2010

A Lewisham police covert camera was installed, and working, in my home – but see https://asblewishame.wordpress.com/2014/10/01/the-lies-of-lewisham-police-part-2/ which explains that only once during this time was footage of an incident I reported collected…the SNT completely misrepresented what it showed…then they refused to collect footage.

Council CCTV October 2010 – October 2011

In September 2010 I made a complaint against Lewisham Council, in October 2010 Lewisham Council installed an overt camera on the lamp-post opposite –

between then and October 2011 there was always either an overt camera or covert camera or both…

but during all this period only once was footage for an incident I reported (03/01/11) retrieved

and I have a document proving Lewisham Council themselves described that footage for 03/01/11 as “poor quality” and I also have an audio recording of them describing it as “very poor quality”…

that document also proves that, despite ‘losing’ the footage for all  the other incidents I reported, Lewisham Council somehow managed to retrieve footage for a date I had NOT reported an incident ie 01/01/11.

(Just for the record here, Lewisham Council subsequently also somehow collected footage for another date both they and Lewisham police knew I had NOT reported an incident ie 21/08/11, but the document referred to above was prior to that, around June 2011.)

This is what is stated in the Local Govt Ombudsman report dated 06/12/12 about Lewisham Council and CCTV and other evidence –

The Council had not gathered any independent evidence…this was not because there was no evidence, but because the Council failed to collect what was available.

I will post soon the proof re all this ‘lost footage and re “poor quality” and known I hadn’t reported an incident 01/01/11 …

and documents proving:

Lewisham police knew very well about all this ‘lost’ CCTV,

when I asked for their help about all this ‘lost’ evidence they just fobbed me off and lied to me,

then they told the self-same lie about CCTV being installed but not supporting my reports of incidents, conveniently and deliberately leaving out that in fact footage had not even been retrieved.

More Lies – part 3

Why did the IPCC make the entirely false claim that none of my neighbours were also reporting incidents?

Background to this – https://asblewishame.wordpress.com/2013/05/03/mps-complaints-and-cover-ups/ 

In their letter refusing my Appeal the IPCC stated:

Despite efforts by police to identify…victims of similar repetitive behaviour this also proved to be unsuccessful”

That, though, is entirely false – and completely misrepresents the true situation…and me when combined with the other lies eg about the CCTV evidence, which I’ll explain on a future post.

Below is the proof that Lewisham police knew that throughout many neighbours had also reported incidents by the same perpetrators I repeatedly identified

so, why were the IPCC falsely claiming police had been unable to identify any other victims?

There can be only three possible explanations –

i) Lewisham police knowingly lied to PS Gibbs, Department of Professional Standards…and her investigation was so poor, so totally inadequate, so lacking in any meaningful investigation, that she failed to discover the truth


ii) PS Gibbs knew the truth, knew that throughout several neighbours had also been reporting incidents, and by the same perpetrators I’d repeatedly identified, but she passed entirely false information to the IPCC


iii) PS Gibbs had properly informed the IPCC that throughout several neighbours had also been reporting incidents by the same perpetrators I’d repeatedly identified…but the IPCC decided to just make up a whopping great lie that Lewisham police hadn’t been able to identify any other victims.

Proof Lewisham police knew other neighbours were also reporting incidents –

I have included only those for the period PS Gibbs was supposed to be investigating ie December 2009–October 2011 (and these are only some of those I happen to know about for that period but I don’t have documents proving the others).  Neighbours were similarly reporting incidents after October 2011 too.
1 – October 2009

When, what it it soon transpired were, a criminal family “well known to the police” moved next door around June 2009, they immediately started targeting me but I didn’t start reporting incidents to the police until December 2009 –

in April 2010 I discovered from a PCSO that on 01 October 2009 – prior to when I’d started reporting incidents, – an official police warning letter had been given to one of the family for their ASB against a neighbour in a nearby road.
2 – June 2010

Other neighbours were also “sick and tired” (quote from a PCSO’s email) of ASB by the same perpetrators I repeatedly identified, four of these neighbours came together and requested a meeting with Lewisham police, they eventually met with two PCSOs from the Safer[sic] Neighbourhood Team.

Below is from the Local Government Ombudsman report, the original documents had been seen by the LGO caseworker investigating my complaint against Lewisham Council –

Two PCSOs attended a meeting at a house in the same street as Ms x’s. They met four different couples who were also experiencing antisocial behaviour from the same family… They were also told of four further households who were also suffering but had been too scared of reprisals to attend the meeting….The PSCOs reported this in writing…with the comment “all these families are now squarely behind [Ms x].
3 – November/December 2010
The following are just a couple of several emails proving Lewisham police knew of four neighbours reporting further incidents November/December 2010.

NB Although Pc Wren said he would take a statement from me re incidents I’d suffered he never actually did this, instead he asked me to send him a list of incidents over the previous six months, which I did. I have our emails proving all this

He has asked me to liaise with you to arrange a meeting with him to discuss the situation and go through the statements.

4 – August 2011
In August 2011 I provided the same Lewisham police PCSO who had written the above email with a list of incidents from June 2011, this for a police and Council meeting taking place on 31 August 2011…

I included in my list the fact that the front window of an elderly, housebound neighbour had been smashed, which had been reported by her family to Lewisham police on 10/08/11…

and that a neighbour had told me another neighbour who lived nearby had also been suffering and reporting incidents by the same perpetrators I’d repeatedly identified.

That the information from my neighbour about another neighbour suffering and reporting incidents was true, was confirmed by Pc Wren during the trial on 28/10/11…the trial following Pc Wren maliciously arresting me on 02/09/11, see https://asblewishame.wordpress.com/2014/04/19/dps-twisting-the-truth/

Dear PCSO xxx, further to your visit today with your colleague, you asked me to email to you a list of recent incidents and I have attached a brief summary of same.

The list I gave you was just a rough draft for my own reference so please ignore that, I have quickly tidied it and the attached version can be used/distributed at the meeting on Wednesday 31/08/11 (if it goes ahead, I am not attending as I explained).

I subsequently saw the minutes from that 31/08/11 meeting – there was no mention at all of my list nor that other neighbours were also suffering incidents…so it seems these important and crucially relevant details had not even been raised at that meeting…or had been conveniently omitted from the minutes…

minutes which were written by PS Anderson, Lewisham police…

the same PS Anderson who two months later on 31/10/11 maliciously referred me to mental health services  claiming I was mentally ill and suffering delusions incidents were happening…

his referral was made around six weeks after my front window was smashed, see https://asblewishame.wordpress.com/2013/05/05/criminal-damage-aka-wear-and-tear/

The Lies of Lewisham Police – part 2

This is regarding the CCTV camera installed by Lewisham police around 20 March 2010, turned off 30 April 2010.

MPS Covert CCTV – c.20March 2010 to 30 April 2010

Around 20 March 2010 Lewisham Police installed a covert camera in my house. I was reporting incidents but at first there was a misunderstanding, I thought the footage was all being saved on the recorder and footage of several incidents would all be collected together…

however, I was subsequently told that the recorder overwrote the footage every few days, so footage of previous incidents was lost.

The first – and only – footage Lewisham police collected from their CCTV camera was for 04/04/10. Much later I discovered they had completely misrepresented what it showed.

At the time, PCSO xxxxxx told me the footage could not be used because it did not show the incident was deliberate, however, I had seen the CCTV (it was played on my DVD after being retrieved from the recorder, xxxxxxxx xxxxx himself said you could see was deliberate) and it did show the incident was deliberate. I told this to PCSO xxxxxx, he said he would pass on what I’d said.

I asked Lewisham police to collect footage of an incident on 28/04/10 but on 30/04/10 PCSO xxxxxx told me they would not collect the footage, he told me “the Inspector” had said they could not collect anything unless it was something they could prosecute for, I said about proving a ‘course of conduct’ but PCSO xxxxxx just kept saying the Inspector said they couldn’t.



– In August 2011 I discovered from papers sent to me by the Local Government Ombudsman that in fact the Downham SNT had entirely misrepresented what the footage for 04/04/10 showed, and that they had lied about the incident on 28/04/10 – I have a document proving what I had in fact reported at the time.


As records of CCTV retrieval/destruction must have been kept to comply with the Data Protection Act, it would be easy for any investigator to check/prove that only once was CCTV footage collected from the police CCTV


– However, for example, after Pc722 Wren maliciously arrested me he falsely claimed in prosecution papers – his MG11 dated 03/09/11 – that “after numerous calls” from me for them to view CCTV “nothing of any evidential value was ever noted”.


– This entirely false claim was also repeated in the prosecution Case Summary document.
– This is also relevant to PS Anderson’s malicious Referral to MH services


When PCSO xxxxxx told me on 30/04/10 that they would not collect the footage I was extremely upset – I did not know at the time about the Downham SNT lying about the incidents 04/04/10 and 28/04/10 so I did not think it was the Downham SNT’s fault, I mistakenly believed they were genuinely trying to help, for which I was very grateful, but that an unconnected Inspector had thwarted this.


As it was unbearable that hard evidence of incidents happening – which could be used to show a course of conduct to take enforcement action to stop the ASB / harassment – was recording upstairs in my home, but the MPS refused to collect it so it was all being overwritten and lost, I told the Downham Safer Neighbourhood team to remove the CCTV camera.

Further to my two telephone conversations with PCSO xxxxxx today…
I…confirm that I wish the camera equipment to be removed, it is pointless it being there as the continuing individual incidents are each being regarded in isolation and ignored rather than either being collected as evidence of a deliberate and ongoing campaign of harassment and anti-social-behaviour, or being collected to be shared with Lewisham Council ASBAT team…
I unplugged the camera at around 6 pm this evening and request that arrangements are made for all the equipment be removed as soon as possible…
Regards xxxxxx xxxxxx

Compare my email above, dated 30 April 2010, to what PS Gibbs stated in her report:

“In June 2010 you became so frustrated with the situation that you threatened to rip out the cameras and demanded they be removed”


Had PS Gibbs’ ‘investigation’ not uncovered my email then?  Aside from the date differences – making it seem the camera – yes singular, there was only one – was working far longer than it actually was, there was nothing to actually “rip out”…the camera was on the window sill resting in an aritificial plant, the lead went to a box just placed on the bed, the box was plugged into the wall socket behind the bed.

However, saying I “threatened” to “rip out” the camera is, of course, so much more derogatory against me than admitting I simply said I was going to unplug the camera, this is typical of how Lewisham police always sought to misrepresent me.


The Downham SNT replied to my email of 30 April 2010 on 11 May 2010 – in a document I subsequently received from the Local Government Ombudsman I saw it was Pc xxxxxx xxxxxx – the same Pc who sent the email below – who was misrepresenting the CCTV/incidents for 04/04/10 and 28/04/10.

I do hope that your issues with next door are resolved. You know where we are if you want to speak to us.

Lewisham police, instead of admitting they refused to collect CCTV footage of incidents, used the fact CCTV was installed to discredit me to everyone, I will explain further about this in subsequent documents.
