THE grieving friends of Emam Uddin who was killed in a car smash in East London are holding a memorial at his old school to honour his life.

They expect 150 to gather at George Green’s Secondary on the Isle of Dogs on February 12 to remember Emam, who died near the school when his car crashed into a lamp-post in Spindrift Avenue in Millwall in October.

He was just round the corner from his home when his car went out of control in the early hours of a Saturday morning.

Headteacher Kenny Frederick said: “Emam was extremely popular and kind who touched the lives of pupils and staff. We want to celebrate his short life with his family and colleagues.”

Emam was studying IT at the University of Westminster, but often went back to visit his old teachers who became his friends.

He was well liked and had had spent a lot of time at the school during his sixthform, taking on the role of part-time premises manager during holidays and term-time.
