Britain creates annual Stephen Lawrence day

Britain is to hold an annual Stephen Lawrence day in memory of the murdered black teenager, Theresa May has announced.   

At a service to commemorate the 25th anniversary of his death, a letter to the family from the Prince of Wales was read out by Prince Harry.

It took British police 19 years to obtain a conviction for the murder. A judge's enquiry into the investigation concluded that there was "institutional racism" within the Metropolitan police force.
