David Morley ‘Sinders’ survivor of Hate Crime attack, victim of gang attack

3rd October 1967 to 30 October 2004

David Morley affectionately known by many as ‘Sinders’ was one of the managers at the Admiral Duncan in Soho when it was targeted by David Copeland’s third nail bomb on Friday 30th April 1999. The first two bombs had been planted in Brixton and Brick Lane targeting the black and Asian communities, whilst the third bomb was aimed at the gay community of Soho.

David survived the bomb attack which left three people dead and many others injured.

He was later attacked by a gang of teenagers at 3.10am on October 30 2004 as he sat with a friend Alistair Whiteside on a bench near London’s Hunderford Bridge. He was punched and kicked, suffering 44 injuries, including 5 fractured ribs. He died of a hemorrhage from a ruptured spleen and fractured ribs.

On January 23, 2006 his attackers were sentenced. Sargeant, Case and Blenman were sentenced to 12 years in prison and O’Mahoney to 8 years
