Hundreds of friends and family members of a murdered musician took part in an event held in his memory.
The poignant 'Icon Peace March' saw the huge entourage walk through the streets of Greenford to highlight the horrific killing of 45-year-old Ian Newtion.
The popular father-of-one from Fulham, who was known as Scoobie Santino, had his throat slashed with a broken bottle as he walked under the subway on the morning of March 22.
Despite emotional appeals from his distraught family for information leading to his killer, detectives investigating his murder have drawn a blank.
The march, which took place on Sunday, started at the subway where Mr Newtion was killed and ended at the 'Scout Hut' on Rockware Avenue, Greenford, where he had been singing shortly before his death.

DI Lee Presland: "We are still appealing to anyone who knows anything about this to come forward.
"It is such a brutal crime and could have been anyone walking through that subway.
"It appears to be a motiveless attack, but we are looking at the possibility it was a robbery."
