A number of criminals were jailed last month for a range of despicable west London crimes.
Among those now behind bars are two moped thugs who killed charity worker and a former priest who watched and shared child sex abuse videos in paedophile forums.
There was also a man from Hounslow who knocked down and killed an 11-year-old Cranford boy while speeding, who was jailed for 27 months last week.
From violent thieves to gang members who carried out an attack with weapons including long swords, here are the faces behind some of west London's most despicable crimes.
A Grenfell Tower fraudster who pretended his dad died in the fire to get hundreds of pounds in cash and a free hotel stay, where he racked up a large room service bill, was jailed last month.
Mohammad Gamoota , 31, was sentenced to 18 months in prison after pleading guilty to two fraud charges at Isleworth Crown Court on Friday June 1.
Gamoota claimed he had been living on the 24th floor of the tower with his dad, who he pretended had died in the devastating fire.
In reality he was living with his mum in Croydon and his dad was living abroad.
To make his fraud more convincing, Gamoota researched a newspaper article about one of the 71 real victims of the fire, and used their name and details - pretending they were his dad.
Gamoota was able to receive £500 in cash, although he had applied for £5,000. He also received £910 worth of free hotel accommodation over nine days, and a £354 room service bill.

At Blackfriars Crown Court on June 8, Iqbal, of Hanson Gardens, was sentenced along with two accomplices – a courier who brought the drugs in and a man who was waiting to collect them.
On November 23 last year National Crime Agency officers caught Iqbal in the toilets at Terminal 5 taking possession of 5.9kg of cocaine from Camilo Pulido Suarez, 37, who had flown in from Bogota, Colombia.
The drugs had a street value of £480,000.
Notting Hill 'drill rap' gang
Members of a Notting Hill gang who used "drill rap" videos to feud with rivals were jailed in June after being caught with a haul of weapons on them.
The five defendants, all aged between 17 and 21, were stopped by police in Colville Square, Notting Hill, just as they were about to launch a revenge attack on a rival gang from Shepherd's Bush on November 9, 2017.
The gang members were armed with machetes and baseball bats as well as masks balaclavas and gloves, which they would later claim in court were simply props which they were planning to use in their latest drill music video.
Micah Bedeau, 18 and his brother Jordan, 17 who lived in Colville Square were on their way to attack the gang after a video was posted of their grandmother being harassed, abused and threatened.
Micah and Jordan were joined by Rhys Herbert, 17, Isaac Marshall, 18 and Yonas Girma, 21 as they prepared to attack the Shepherd's Bush gang, with whom they had a longstanding rivalry, Kingston Crown Court heard.

Metropolitan Police officers, acting on intelligence, watched the cab driver go to the address, home to Sebastien Hajda, 29, where he was handed a plastic bag containing a box.
After the cab driver put the package in the boot and drove off, he was stopped by police. Officers found a handgun and 137 round of .32 ammunition in the bag.
The driver protested his innocence when the package was found, and satisfied the police officers that Mysiak had not told him he was transporting the gun.
After being charged, Mysiak breached his bail and didn't attend hearing at Kingston Crown Court , where he was found guilty on Wednesday (June 13). Both he and Hajda were jailed for eight years.

A clumsy smuggler who attempted to flood the UK with illegal tobacco and alcohol - evading nearly £1million in excise duty in the process - was caught red-handed after dropping his illegal stash right in front of investigators.
Krzysztof Kochna and his accomplice were arrested after dropping stacks of illicit cigarettes beneath the nose of HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) officers.
The 45-year-old, of Wood End Lane, Northolt , was arrested as he helped unload cigarettes and alcohol into a storage unit in Tottenham.
The haul was hidden in metal cages and a pallet full of cigarettes came crashing down from a forklift truck as it was being unloaded from an HGV, exposing its contents to watching HMRC investigators who then swooped to arrest him.
