A TRAINEE driving instructor, who shot a man in a café with a vintage gun, has admitted murder.

Gary Oxley, 48, killed Joseph Olliffe, 35, from Bromley, at point-bank range as he drank coffee in the DA Sandwich Cafe in Court Road, Mottingham, on March 4 this year.

Oxley of Hornbeam Avenue, Bexhill-on-Sea, east Sussex, appeared at the Old Bailey last Friday where he admitted shooting the father-of-two in the back of the head with a .455-calibre Webley Mk1 revolver.

He pleaded guilty to murder and possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life and his trial is due to start on October 12 this year.

No plea was entered to a charge of attempted murder of an unknown person.

The prosecution will now consider whether to go ahead with a trial on the remaining charge or accept his pleas.

Mr Olliffe leaves behind girlfriend Petra, the mum of his four-year-old daughter and son, three.
