Inquest finds Stephen Lawrence 'unlawfully killed'

A coroner's jury into the death of Stephen Lawrence found that he was unlawfully killed.

After the verdict, the coroner said: "A young man had been killed in cold blood for no other reason than that the colour of his skin was black."

Five men accused of involvement in Stephen Lawrence's death have always denied the claims.

Joshua Rozenberg reports.
