Man arrested after murder of the “flower man of Islington”

A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a flower seller was stabbed to death near his street stall.

It’s believed the 20-year-old suspect was “known” to the victim Tony Eastlake, aged 50.

Mr Eastlake – “the flower man of Islington” to his customers – was attacked on Essex Road in north London.


Detective Chief Inspector Vicky Tunstall, leading the investigation, said:

“Our dedicated team of officers have worked tirelessly to identify the person suspected of the murder of Tony Eastlake.

“I hope this brings some reassurance to the community after what was an incredibly traumatic and unsettling incident that has cost the life of a well loved and respected man.

“I can confirm that this attack is not believed to have occurred as a result of a robbery.”

The police have urged members of the public to check their CCTV and dashcam footage for information.
