A bakery retailer in south-east London has been closed temporarily after a fatal stabbing.
Teenager Jimmy Mizen was killed in an unprovoked attack last Saturday (10 May) at the Three Cooks shop on Burnt Ash Hill in Lee.Mizen was stabbed with a shard of glass after he refused to take up the challenge of a fight from another youth.A spokesman for Solihull-based parent company Cooks the Bakery said the premises had been closed initially by police because it was a crime scene. The shop will be kept closed "until such a time as we feel it's right to reopen" he added.Shop staff have been offered support and counselling. "They are being offered comfort, support and everything else that you would expect from a decent employer," added the spokesman. As British Baker went to press, police had arrested a 19-year-old man in connection with the murder.
