Dave West murdered by his son

David West, 44, has been charged with the murder of his father, the flamboyant nightclub owner Dave West Senior, 70,  after stabbing him in a drunken row.
Dave West died of a single knife wound at his London St James's home in Ormond Yard, Jermyn Street, where neighbour Stephen Fry reported screams.

Mostly recognisable in his trademark Italian pink suits, the entrepreneur patronised balls and polo parties, often bidding generously for charitable auction lots.  He rose from market trader to head a £100million empire.

However, despite paying £100,000 for a ticket to David and Victoria Beckham's 2006 World Cup Party, he was made unwelcome, because his pink suit was against the dress code, and did not attend.  Despite suing the Beckhams for slander, the High Court Judge threw out the case.

He hired barrister Cherie Blair to fight the no smoking ban, and took her on a tour of his £4million club.
Traces of polonium-210 were found in the club after two ex KGB agents, wanted for the murder of Alexander Litvinenko, visited it in 2007.

Dave West conceded that all he ever wanted, was to see his children make a success of their lives.
