A MEMORIAL service has been organised for a man who sold books in the street in West Hampstead for more than 20 years.

John Henderson, 47, also known as ‘Spider’, was found dead in the Black Path last month.

A service will be held at Emmanuel Church on June 22 at 4pm followed by a wake at the Alliance pub in Mill Lane. A plaque to his dog, Sugar, was erected last year.
