This week in 2005 a heartbroken father paid tribute to his six-year-old daughter and estranged partner who were found murdered in their Somers Town home.
The bodies of Nicole Batten, 34, and Ukleigha Batten-Froggatt, were discovered in Levita House, Ossulston Street, days after they had been killed.
Vincent Froggatt, 37, told the Ham&High he had planned to give his daughter a new life in Bournemouth away from the dangers of inner London, before she was killed.
In other news, pupils at a Camden Town primary school were left without a headteacher despite the job being advertised four times.
St Michael's CE Primary School in Camden Street raised the salary to £58,785 but to no avail.

Elsewhere, an artist censored his own work after managers at a Highgate arts centre asked him to hide his painting of a male nude.
The 70-year-old refused and put his full-frontal nude in the main room of the ground floor of Lauderdale House with the word "censored" over the sensitive area.
