Man Charged With Murder of Celebrity Bodyguard Ricky Hayden

A 19-year-old man has been charged with the murder of Ricky Hayden, a celebrity bodyguard who was stabbed to death in east London.

Tommy Roome, 19, of Rams Grove, Romford, has also been charged with the attempted murder of Mr Hayden’s father, Paul, 54.

It follows an attack outside their home in Chadwell Heath, east London, last week.

Police said the father and son were injured when they confronted a group of men as they tried to steal a moped outside the house.

Roome is due to appear at Barkingside Magistrates’ Court on Friday.

Two teenagers arrested on suspicion of murder in connection with the incident, aged 19 and 16, have been released on police bail pending further inquiries.

Mr Hayden, 27, was a council worker who had also worked as a celebrity bodyguard, with clients including Peter Crouch and Abbey Clancy.
