Morrison was vice-chair of the area's Safer Neighbourhood Board.

David Perry, leader of Harrow Council, said: "Alison Morrison was passionately committed to creating a safer Harrow… and it is terrible news that she had lost her life in this violent way in a borough she cared about so much.

"Alison's colleagues on the Safer Neighbourhood Board are absolute shattered by this news, as are the staff of Harrow Council."
