Kenny D’Cruz, 47, was walking at Camden Lock with his fiancée and a friend from the  therapy group he runs at the Pirate Castle in Oval Road, Camden Town, when he was stopped by two men who offered to sell him drugs. When he refused they pushed him in the water.

“Before I knew it I was pushed in the water,” he said. “It was quite a shock. I couldn’t touch the bottom, I was too far from the bank.
