Ahmed’s father was taken in a wheelchair to a waiting ambulance, but died three hours later in hospital.
A fleet of seven ambulances and a dozen police cars had converged on the quiet Huddleston Close off Parmiter Street, near Victoria Park.
The cul-de-sac, built in 1993 as a community for large families, was named after the late Bishop of Stepney Trevor Huddleston, a formidable campaigner against South African apartheid in the 1960s.
