I find it hard to know what to say but i've got to do this.

You'll have probably read or heard about Len Saunders who was punched for not having a cigarette in a street attack and passed away on sunday ,he was 65 years old.

2 guys remain in custody.

I've been numb all day since i received an email from Ann Shacklady Smith from Lucem House and read the Star,i still can't take it in.

Len has been a friend for around 5 years who always made me laugh and had time for everyone.I know lots of people say he/she was so lovely when they die but Len was,honest..wouldn't harm a fly.

I seen him more regularly over these last few months than ever before mostly on Corporation St were we would have a good natter.

Condolences to his family and friends and may he rest in peace.

You know what @Alan i really don't know.

I never cry but in the early hours i did,the reason is..I received a picture of the 2 cowards that are supposedly in custody and are involved in the confrontation with Len.

I really want to post it so you can all see them but i can't until they are actually named plus i know the street they are from.

This judge a complete arsehole Come on they don't live in the real world.

The one with him is as guilty as the other,he witnessed it and did nothing.One is let off and one is tagged from 7pm to 7am and not allowed in merseyside unless for appointments.

Well he's in Wigan.

What an utter disgrace!

The law has been changed to accommodate that. The law doesn't now need to know who cast the final killing blow. If you are there and did nothing to stop it then you are implicated. It takes in gang type killings and harm.

It's called 'joint enterprise' when a number of people are present at the time of the crime's commission - even though the crime is carried out by a single member of that group.

I thought they were considering looking at joint enterprise.Remembering the appeals from those involved in the killing in warrington.There were apparently appeals on behalf of the lads involved.

Plus the rest and hopefully in agony and dry (sorry if it offends but it's how i feel)..He looks as he's been crying on the mugshot picture and he will be!

I've got a yellow tie for friday's funeral as Len liked yellow which all this shouldn't be happening.

Some people may not agree at taking photos at funerals but i was asked by Ann-Shacklady Smith who worked with Len at Lucem House on Corporation St.

I also met Len's niece and sister with it being a full house at Lowe House Church.

A camera crew was filming outside which i've never heard of called 'Made Tv' from Liverpool which will be on at 6pm on Freeview/Sky and Virgin.

They asked me to say a few words about Len but i declined saying i'll stay behind the camera instead.

RIP Len Banana,you'll be missed.
