Doreen Lawrence: 'We had no idea this was going on'

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.

We had no idea this was going on from 1993 until 1997.
