The mother of murdered teenager Stephen Lawrence is to be introduced to the House of Lords.

Doreen Lawrence - who will be known as Baroness Lawrence of Clarendon - accepted a Labour peerage earlier this year for her ongoing campaign work.

She has said she wants to use her new role to help change more lives.
