This is the moment a frustrated member of the public tore down a twisted shrine to a burglar killed during a botched burglary.

Using the Facebook name Cecil Coley, the "extremely furious" man drove specifically to south London to remove the tributes to burglar Henry Vincent, who died after being stabbed by pensioner Richard Osborn-Brooks.

Responding to his "brave" act, people online called him a "legend" and said he "deserves a medal".

Posting on Facebook, Cecil said: "When I heard that the family of Henry Vincent (the burglar that got stabbed to death by his intended victim), had placed flowers on the road where he died, I was extremely furious," he said.

"So I drove to south London, to the road, and saw the flowers and stuff.

"I noticed some unlawfully attached onto a fence, which is someone's private property, so the gentle [sic] who owns the house gave me verbal consent to remove.

"He told me that he was intending on removing the flowers himself tomorrow, but I gladly did it for him voluntarily, after all he was an elderly gentleman himself as well."
