Trial of Stephen Lawrence suspects begins

The trial of two men accused of murdering Stephen Lawrence, who was stabbed to death at a bus stop in south-east London 18 years ago, is due to begin.

Gary Dobson, 36, and David Norris, 35, both of south London, pleaded not guilty in July.

The killing of Stephen Lawrence prompted a major investigation of the way the Metropolitan Police dealt with racist crime, and led to a reform of the law.

Matt Prodger reports.
