Neasden hard-man, gangster, suspected murderer and organised crime kingpin Arthur Pewty emerged from his flat today looking dishevelled and decidedly unhappy.
Pewty ran the media gauntlet based around his flat in Norman Wisdom Tower Village, Neasden and headed hurriedly for the local shops.
Arthur Pewty looked slightly unsteady on his feet, however one of our intrepid reporters managed to catch upwith him to ask him where he was going and why.
Arthur Pewty explained: 'For God's sake it's my day off work. If you really must know I'm off up to Somerfield's to get a couple of four packs of strong continental lager, a mixer for the absinthe I've got in the cupboard which we smuggled back from Barcelona, something for Beryl's supper because she's working a late shift, a couple of tins of cat food, some fag papers and filters and a daily paper if they've got one left.
'Now will you just leave me alone and let me get on with my life. I keep telling everybody I'm not a sodding gangster. I don't even look like Bob Hoskins.'
