The ranks of the House of Lords are due to be swollen with the publication of a new list of working peers, including Doreen Lawrence, the mother of murdered London teenager Stephen.

Mrs Lawrence's seat in the Upper House as a Labour baroness comes after a 20 year fight for justice for her son, who was stabbed to death at the age of 18 in a racist attack in south London.
