The Markham Square Siege

The scene of Mark Saunders gun siege and death.


This is where in 2008 barrister Mark Saunders came home to his four-storey Georgian townhouse after heavy drinking and began shooting from his window and the ensuing five hour siege saw him shot dead by police marksmen.

He began shooting at a children's bedroom at 1 Bywater Street, before police arrive and return fire.
