THE blaze which destroyed the building that housed the historic Keskidee Centre – first black arts centre in the country – is being treated as suspicious, but is likely to remain a mystery, police have said.

More than 40 firefighters tackled the fire at the Christ Apostolic Church in Gifford Street, King’s Cross last month.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “We have now exhausted all lines of inquiry. Realistically, the investigation is closed.”




If it was the BNP HQ, investigations would remain open indefinately and only close when persons involved are brought to justice... look how long it took for STEPHEN LAWRENCE!

The keskidee centre has been a thorn in the side of a particular group of people throughout the decades.

I have personally witnessed attacks on the centre during the 70's. Just when we thought the community was getting back on track tension began to build since the demise of BK.

I personally feel the "Investors" played a big part in the destruction of THE KESKIDEE CENTRE.
