Murderers, fraudsters and burglars have all been sent behind bars in south east London and north Kent this month.

Some tragic murder cases came to their conclusion in February, as well as a fraudster who pretended his family died in the Grenfell Tower fire.

These are the most significant cases last month for people who were jailed.

He was sentenced on February 19 at the same court to five years behind bars.
