What has changed since Stephen Lawrence murder?

It is 20 years ago next week since the murder of black teenager, Stephen Lawrence, who was stabbed to death by a group of white youths as he waited for a bus in Eltham, South East London.

The case led to widespread reforms after an inquiry led by Sir William Macpherson concluded that the Metropolitan Police were "institutionally racist".

BBC Newsnight examines what has changed in our institutions and society in those 20 years, hearing from young people and community leaders about the state of relations between the police and the public today.
