On August 3 Mr Lee, at the wheel of a black BMW, is thought to have driven straight through a mini-roundabout at the end of Shire Lane - at the junction with Farnborough Hill - before crashing into a ditch.

Police and the London Ambulance Service were called at 7.10pm, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

At the time officers from the serious collision investigation unit at Catford, leading the inquiry, appealed for witnesses.
