The fish and chips restaurant’s main window - now boarded up - was reportedly smashed with wood after the vandal failed the first time to break it with a glass bottle.

The perpetrator then allegedly broke a car’s wing mirror and smashed a plant pot at a house in St James Lane.

Last Monday (April 20), Toff’s owner George Georgiou, 62, died from coronavirus, prompting an outpour of tributes from Muswell Hill and beyond.

Muswell Business traders group said the area “will never be the same” without George as he was “one of our own”.
