Doreen Lawrence: How can I celebrate when my son lies buried?


Two men have been convicted of the racist murder of black teenager Stephen Lawrence 18 years after the attack in south London.

Speaking outside the High Court, Stephen's mother Doreen Lawrence, said while there was some relief at the verdicts, it was not a cause to celebrate.

"How can I celebrate when my son lies buried?", she asked.

"These verdicts will not bring my son back."

She said she hoped the police would not use her son's name to say they can now move on.
