The killers of Stephen Lawrence have been sentenced at the Old Bailey today for a minimum of 15 years and 2 months and 14 years and 3 months.

Gary Dobson, who was 17 at the time of murder, sentenced to 15 years and 2 months while David Norris, who was 16, was sentenced to minimum of 14 years and 3 months.

The judge Mr Justice Treacy said that this should not close the door on the case as there are “three or four other killers out there.”

Mr Lawrence, 18, was stabbed in Well Hall Road in Eltham in a racist attack in April 1993.
