A man 'wheelspun' his car down the road in a speedy escape after killing his neighbour during a fight, a court heard.

Anthony Turner, 41 is accused of the murder of Michael Mann who died after being stabbed in Willesden High Road on May 2 last year.

A passenger in a car which was driving past at the time of the attack told the Old Bailey how he 'saw the man drop' after the fight.

He said: "I saw one man throw a punch, jump into his car and wheelspin off. It looked like the other man did not really want to fight."

The court heard earlier in the week how Turner, of High Rd, Willesden and his girlfriend, Kate Hughes, 26, of Okehampton Rd, Kensal Rise, had a long history of disputes with Mr Mann and his partner, Natasha Enebi who was with him at the time of the attack.

Turner and Hughes lived above Mr Mann, his partner and their six-month-old son in Sandringham Road, Willesden.

Mr Mann fell to the floor as cars on the High Road had stopped to see what was going on.

He died in the street from a knife wound to his heart, shortly before the ambulance arrived.

Police arrested Hughes on the night of the incident and Turner later handed himself in at Wembley police station.

Turner and Hughes both deny murder.

The trial continues.
