Scotland Yard shelves Stephen Lawrence murder investigation

Scotland Yard say they have now put the Stephen Lawrence murder investigation on hold – after admitting they had been unable to secure any further convictions.

The Met commissioner Cressida Dick described it as “deeply frustrating” that other suspects had not been brought to justice.

Stephen’s mother Baroness Lawrence said “while the Metropolitan police have given up, I never will” – adding that it was never too late to give a mother justice for the murder of her son.
