This week in 2005 vigilantes were set to take to the leafy streets of Highgate to crack down on vicious gangs of yobs and burglars.
The crime-busters, including a Second World War hero, were to patrol Cromwell Avenue, Cromwell Place and surrounding roads to stop a "wave" of burglaries.
Elsewhere, Prince Harry snubbed an invitation to a play about Holocaust survivors but has apologised for wearing a Nazi uniform to a fancy dress party.
The Prince, then 20 years old, was invited to a performance of Planet Palestine at Highgate's Upstairs at the Gatehouse Theatre.
Meanwhile a pensioner had a miraculous escape after she was crushed under a bus in a Golders Green garage.
