Two people in Brockley have passed information to the police that could prove vital in the effort to convict more people for the murder of Stephen Lawrence in Eltham in 1993. The Sun reports that:
Mr Lawrence said: "After the verdict, I met two people in Brockley, London, on Saturday who knew one of the guys that was part of the gang. They mentioned the boy confessed that he was there on the night. They gave me their names and addresses and I passed them on to the police."
We went to school with him, albeit too briefly before his murder, and from what we knew of him and what people who knew him better said of him, he was entirely the warm, mild-mannered, bright and promising young man that the tributes following his death described.
