The uncle of a father who died after he was attacked in the Isle of Dogs has sent up a crowd fundraiser for his grieving family.

Charges

A 32-year-old has been charged with GBH with intent and was due to appear for trial at Snaresbrook Crown Court next Monday, but this is now being reviewed in light of Terrence Baker’s death.

Two women aged 30 and 31 were also arrested at the scene for a separate assault arising out of the same incident.

Both have since been charged with common assault on a 27-year-old woman and have been bailed to appear on February 9 at Stratford Magistrates’ Court.

Terrence Baker, 29, from Limehouse, passed away in hospital on Sunday – five months after he was critically injured in Plevna Street in the early hours of June 18.

Paying tribute to the father-of-four, Stevie Clarke said on the Just Giving page: “My nephew was sadly taken away from us as he was severely attacked and could not fight back.

“Terry will be missed by man especially his babies. All this money we raise will be give to his beautiful children so they can have there future that he wanted them to have.”

So far £1,405 of the £20,000 goal has been raised.
