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.
