Trayvon Martin's family will visit Stephen Lawrence's memorial later today. 17-year-old Trayvon was shot after an altercation with George Zimmerman in Florida in February. Initially Zimmerman was questioned but not arrested by police. This ignited a huge public outcry and accusations of racism.

Stephen's mother wrote to Trayvon's mother, Sybrina Fulton, following the shooting. Sybrina will tour the Stephen Lawrence centre in Deptford along with his father Tracy Martin and older brother Jahvaris. The centre provides training and education for vulnerable and disadvantaged people.
