Description:
East Acton is a place in west London, England. It is partly in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham and partly in the London Borough of Ealing. It is served by East Acton tube station, on the Central Line in Travelcard Zone 2.

Anciently, East Acton and Acton developed as separate settlements and the nearby districts of North Acton, West Acton and South Acton were developed in the late 19th century.

Braybrook Street, East Acton attained notoriety on 12 August 1966 when three policemen were shot dead after they apprehended three men inside a Standard Vanguard car which was parked in the street after realising it had no tax disc. Exactly four months later,Harry Roberts, Jack Witney and John Duddy were found guilty on three charges of murder at the Old Bailey and sentenced to life imprisonment. Duddy remained in prison until he died in 1981 at the age of 52. Witney was paroled in 1991 after serving 25 years in prison, and died in 1999 at the age of 69 after being attacked at his home in Bristol. Roberts is still in prison more than 40 years after being captured, and is now one of the longest serving prisoners in England and Wales.
