A man has been charged with stealing from the landlord of an iconic pub as he lay dead or dying in the street.

Graham Fitzpatrick, 50, of Hilldrop Crescent, Holloway, is accused of the theft of property from Michael Doheny, who ran the famous Worlds End pub in Camden Town.

Mr Doheney was found dead in the street near the pub 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.

As he lay dead or dying, his possessions were strewn across the road.

Fitzpatrick denies the charges and will next appear at Blackfriars Crown Court on June 3.

A woman arrested at the scene for stealing from Mr Doheny has served 20 weeks in jail.

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