    Local Democracy Reporting Service

    Health bosses have outlined their plans to tackle poor end-of-life care in the borough.

    Figures released this week show Redbridge came 185th out of 211 national care commissioning groups and 19th out of the 32 London boroughs.

    A growing and ageing population was blamed for the ranking, along with high demand for end of life care and levels of deprivation.

    To tackle the issue, Redbridge Clinical Commissioning Group plans to set up specific support groups for the elderly and want to focus on prevention tactics to keep older people healthier for longer.

    The CCG is run by GPs and is responsible for commissioning health services in its area.

    Scotland Yard said they have little information about the 40-year-old, who was known as Happy, and are trying to find his next of kin.

    Det Sgt Patrick Enright said they were "keen to speak to anyone who knew Mr Singh and can help us piece together his background."

    A white squirrel, temples and the Thornton Heath clock tower have all been spray painted on the streets in a bid to curb fly tipping in the area.

    As part of a campaign to tackle the problem white stencilled designs have been sprayed to the pavement around signposts and lampposts.

    The designs are also coated with reflective paint so they can be seen at night to deter would-be fly tippers.The project is funded by the People's Health Trust as part of Thornton Heath Community Action Team's Street Action Project which has been running for more than a year.

    Next summer will see two new murals created in Brook and Quadrant Road as well as five new lamp post planters in Melfort Road.

    Gaetane Jones, the project coordinator, said the work is helping 'not just turn heads but also turn hearts'.

    The design was created by local print designer Samantha Warren: "This is a first for me. I have printed on many other surfaces; wallpaper, fabric, metal, plastic but not pavement before.

    "I knew the idea had to be attractive and immediately thought of something pretty and circular to fit around a lamp post, something like a lace doily.

    "This idea developed as I wanted to make the design personal to Thornton Heath and incorporate cultural references.

    "I used motifs representing the CR7 postcode, Crystal Palace, the great local musical talents, the grocery stores, the temples, the clock tower and the legendary white squirrel from Grangewood Park to represent the community."

    Councillor Stuart Collins, deputy leader and cabinet member for clean, green Croydon, had a go spray painting some of the designs.

    He added: "Thornton Heath has rallied together to try and tackle the problem with a novel and eye-catching solution.

    "We will continue to support our communities to tackle the problems that matter the most to them."
