The recently-widowed victim had just popped out to post a letter and was headed to the Lawson Medical Centre off Hoxton Street when she was attacked from behind in the grounds.

Edwards appeared at Thames Magistrates’ Court on Monday.

He has been remanded in custody to appear at Wood Green Crown Court on August 15.
