Owusu’s boss, Mr Amiah, revealed to the Evening Standard that deceased had been watching the Champions League match with his visiting uncle at home when he decided to visit a friend next door.

“She did what she could to try to help him before the ambulance arrived. She was distraught, she felt helpless and hopeless. She was still clearly in shock when I saw her.
