Father of Stephen Lawrence: 'Racism a big issue' in UK

The father of Stephen Lawrence says he is "satisfied" after two men were jailed for life for murdering his son.

Last week Gary Dobson, 36, and David Norris, 35, were jailed for the racist murder in south-east London in 1993.

Mr Lawrence told the BBC he was also hoping evidence might emerge about the whereabouts of the murder weapon.

Earlier Mr Lawrence's best friend, Duwayne Brooks, who suffered post-traumatic stress disorder, said "it was all worth it" following the conviction.
