The Manslaughter of Annie Castle and Billy Bryan

On 22 August 1993, 71-year-old Billy Bryan and 74-year-old Annie Castle were killed in Bethnal Green, East London.

Several black men broke into Annie's flat the night of her death and, after tying Billy up, tore the rings from her fingers. As a result, she had a heart attack and died.

Billy was found dead the next day. He also had had a heart attack.

Those responsible for their deaths have never been found.

Oona King, New Labour MP for Bethnal Green and Bow, never bothered to mention the deaths of her constituents, Annie Castle and Billy Bryan, in the House of Commons. (For King's PC credentials go here)

No MP has ever mentioned the names of Billy Bryan or Annie Castle in the House of Commons.

Annie and Billy are pictured below:
