Bedfordshire town suffers nine shootings in four month crime wave

 

Police say armed patrols in place for 'foreseeable future' to deter violence

 

Officers with guns and dogs will also be increasing searches to find weapons

 

With a heavily-armed policeman guarding the playground, assault rifle at the ready, it could be the scene of a terror alert.

 

In fact, this is a routine patrol just yards from a suburban primary school.

 

The show of force is designed to calm residents of an estate plagued by gang shootings.


In the past four months there have been nine gun-related incidents in Luton linked to the Marsh Farm and Lewsey Farm estates.

 

In the latest, a 16-year-old boy was shot in the back early on Saturday morning. He may never walk again.

 

The violence has left law- abiding families so terrified they welcome the patrols, even if they risk scaring children.
Faye Bell, 37, a mother of two, said: ‘The armed police might seem heavy-handed to some people but to us they are hugely reassuring.

 

‘It’s very sad that it has come to this but we need the police to be armed so they can protect our kids.’

 

The officers, with a dog unit, have been patrolling the estate near the rundown Purley shopping centre all week.

 

Marsh Farm residents told the Daily Mail yesterday that the armed patrols had given them the confidence to go outside.

 

Shannon Read, 17, said: ‘I don’t really come out of my house at all so it’s reassuring to know these patrols are here.

 

‘I knew the lad who got shot on Saturday so it has been even more terrifying recently.’

 

Darren Putney, 46, added: ‘Some of the children on the way to school or in the play area look frightened.

 

‘But the police need to make their presence known.’

 

The officers carry Heckler and Koch G36C assault rifles with 5.56mm calibre ammunition that can pierce body armour.

 

 

 


Kyle Beckford, 22, was sentenced to 24 years for killing Delaney Brown, 19, by driving a stolen BMW at him last year.

 

Judge Richard Foster said: ‘Gang culture gives its members a sense of belonging, of self importance ... There can be no excuse for the men of this town to live in this gang culture.

A gang member who killed his former schoolfriend by mounting the pavement and driving at him in a stolen car has been jailed for 24 years today.

Beckford rammed a stolen BMW into Mr Brown, as he rode along the pavement and sent him hurtling into a brick gate post where the force broke his neck.

 

He died within moments of being hit on September 5, last year.

The pair had been friends while pupils at Denbigh High School in Luton but later became part of rival gangs.

 

Mr Brown was a member of the Lewsey Farm Gang, sometimes known as The Trap Gang, while Beckford was a member of the Marsh Farm Gang.

 

Judge Richard Foster told Beckford there was 'no excuse' for gang culture in Luton.

 

He said: 'You showed a complete lack of remorse. Any tears are for the position you now find yourself in and not for the death of Delaney Brown.'

 

The judge added: 'There can be no excuse for the men of this town to live in this gang culture.'

Stuart Trimmer QC prosecuting said: 'He deliberately rammed the bike with sufficient force to lock the two together, deforming the rear wheel of the bike and propelling the body of Delaney Brown forward with considerable force.'

 

Both Mr Brown and Beckford had appeared in YouTube videos for their respective gangs and in the weeks leading up to Mr Brown's death there had been a number of 'violent incidents between these groups'
