The Prime Minister has made a statement regarding the verdicts in the Stephen Lawrence trial.

Mr Cameron said:

In the 19 years since his murder, Stephen Lawrence’s family has fought tirelessly for justice.

Today’s verdict cannot ease the pain of losing a son. But, for Doreen and Neville Lawrence, I hope that it brings at least some comfort after their years of struggle.
