Collins-Grant pulled a knife out from her belongings and without warning lunged at Ms Loseke

According to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), Ms Loseke had accused Collins-Grant of making advances towards her girlfriend which led to the pair fighting in a nightclub weeks before the stabbing.

Leading up to the stabbing Collins-Grant was staying at the homes of different friends because she had been evicted from her hostel.

On 8 September, she had been asked to leave the property she was staying in over claims she had been speaking behind her friend’s back and slept with the boyfriend of another friend.
