After the Malenge murder the investigation team drove him to Hackney Central station. They led him into a cubicle and showed him CCTV footage of the suspects running through the station. It was poorly lit and the attackers were a shadowy blur, their faces largely obscured. Collins studied the video and immediately identified two of the figures, from memory, based on the few facial features he could make out. The third figure also looked familiar. Later that weekend, Collins was watching a rap video on his mobile phone (many of the characters he ran into on the street made rap videos) and realised one of the men in the video was the third figure in the footage. When he returned to work he supplied the third name. Detectives quickly found and charged the three men Collins had identified – and a woman who had not appeared in the CCTV footage – with murder. They went on trial at the Old Bailey that July. Collins gave evidence and was cross-examined regarding his identifications. On 21 August 2015, the jury convicted all four suspects of murder; the following month they were all sentenced to between 12 and 18 years.
