Doreen Lawrence, the mother of murdered teenager Stephen Lawrence, demanded answers today after meeting Home Secretary Theresa May and called for an open inquiry into claims police tried to smear her family. Mrs Lawrence said:
She said all options are open and she explained about the different reviews that are going on at the moment and how it could be expanded.
I made my point quite clear. For the past 20 years the fact that we as a family have been talking about corruption and we have undercover officers trying to smear our family. I want answers. I want to know who was the senior officer who signed that off.
We had no idea this was going on from 1993 until 1997.
