THE family of man who was found dead in a Camden Town park have paid tribute to the 57- year-old.

Andrew Dunne was from Liverpool and had moved to London in 1986. He had been living at Conway House, a hostel in Quex Road in Kilburn.

Paramedics were called to College Gardens on November 4, but Mr Dunne had died.

His sister Clare Cosgrove told the New Journal: “He was very well liked, had a cheeky smile and a wicked sense of humour. He was very knowledgeable about London’s famous (and not so famous) sites and its history and loved showing visitors around and also introducing them to his local friends.”

Mr Dunne had worked as a plasterer and had a “huge network of friends”, said his sister.

“As a plasterer he was very talented as he specialised in Venetian marbling and he certainly it up a few Islington dining rooms,” she added.

His niece Cath Fisher said: “He took great pride in showing people around, anyone who visited got a tour of Camden. Camden was good for him.”
