What those families did for me I can't even start to explain to people.

Two of the group of up to six men who attacked the teenager and his friend Duwayne Brooks because they were black have been convicted of murder, but the rest have evaded justice.

In an interview to mark the 25th anniversary of the killing on 22 April 1993, Neville Lawrence said: "The fact that I had to lose my first child has been devastating".

The father of three said: 'I will never be the person I was before Stephen's death. Maybe sometimes people think you can just brush things aside. "You can only forgive somebody when they have shown remorse and accepted what they have done - and they haven't".

'It is a life sentence, ' he said. I've been serving a life sentence for the last 25 years and I will go on serving that until the day I die. So in order to be a Christian, I decided I am going to forgive all those people who were involved in my son's murder.

The initial investigation into Stephen's death was hampered by incompetence, racism and alleged corruption, and detectives have admitted the case is unlikely to progress without new information.

Mr Lawrence said: 'I was so inspired by his persona and the way he talked to people.

The father of Stephen Lawrence has said he forgives his son's killers, 25 years after they stabbed the 18-year-old to death as he waited for a bus in Eltham, south-east London.

Mr Lawrence, a former plasterer, said the murder and subsequent public inquiry into racism in the police had made his son a significant figure in British history.

"When these boys killed my son Stephen, they created a legend", he said. In his death, Stephen is a legend.

He said he plans to spend the anniversary of his son's death in church. There is debate about racism, there are organisations set up to help to make people understand about racism, the police have been put under the spotlight because of Stephen's death'.

Parts of the United Kingdom, especially London, have seen a surge in violent crime this year - with almost 60 murders in the capital since the start of 2018. There have been nearly 60 murders in London this year.

Neil Acourt, 42, is behind bars for masterminding a £4 million cannabis smuggling ring, while his brother Jamie, 41, is on the run in Spain and wanted for links to drugs crime. The only gang member still on British streets is Knight, 41. A key moment for Mr Lawrence and his ex-wife Doreen, who is now Baroness Lawrence, was meeting Nelson Mandela two weeks after Stephen died.

Neville can feel proud of what he has achieved in the intervening years.
