A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a man charged with stealing from the landlord of an iconic Camden Town pub as he lay dead or dying in the street.
Graham Fitzpatrick, 50, of Hilldrop Crescent, Holloway, is accused of theft of property from Michael Doheny, who ran the famous World’s End pub in Camden High Street, but today failed to appear for the opening of his trial.
Sitting at Blackfriars Crown Court this morning, Judge Blacksell QC signed a warrant for Fitzpatrick’s arrest after discovering the defendant had not arrived for the hearing and could not be contacted.
Mr Doheny was found dead in the street near the World’s End in the early hours of the morning in November last year.
An inquest confirmed that he had died from a head injury after a night of heavy drinking.

Fitzpatrick denies the theft charge, while Maria Kitanous, 47, of Drovers Way, Holloway, pleaded guilty to theft in February.
