Stephen Lawrence’s father on forgiving his son’s killers

It’s 25 years to the day since the teenager Stephen Lawrence was stabbed to death in an unprovoked racist attack in south east London – two of the gang are now serving life in jail for his murder although three other suspects have not been convicted.

People have begun laying flowers and tributes beside a special plaque in Eltham, marking the spot where 18-year-old Stephen was killed. And at a memorial service, his father Neville Lawrence said that forgiving his son’s killers had helped him to move on.
