Last night saw a new Crimewatch appeal into Stephen Lawrence’s murder to mark the 20th anniversary of his death.

Despite Gary Dobson and David Norris being convicted in January 2011, the case is open and Det Con Insp Clive Driscoll took viewers back to the scene.

Following the programme investigating officer Mr Driscoll said they received a number of phone calls.

He added: “It’s very encouraging. We have had many phone calls tonight but two in particular are, I would say, very significant.

“One could produce a potential eye witnesses to the attack, and one gives very good background information about suspects already known.

“In addition to that we have also had three phone calls about the green jumper or jacket and we will certainly be making enquiries around those bits of information to verify them.”
