PC Blakelock's son Lee: 'Keith was a person' as well as an officer

PC Keith Blakelock's son Lee has said that the main point he wanted to get across in a rare television interview for the family was that his father "was a person".

He said: “Keith was a person. Yes he was a uniform and that’s what they attacked and they killed a police officer but he was a family man. I always wanted to join the police, since before my Dad died.

"It was something as a kid I always wanted to do. I’m immensely proud of taking over the mantle of PC Blakelock.”

Anyone with information can contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or the Metropolitan Police Incident Room - 020 8203 4617.
