A crowd at a vigil in memory of a murdered schoolgirl moved to a building nearby where the Justice for Nikki Allan slogan is painted on the wall. Many of the 100 mourners were wearing pink in her memory. Pink roses brought to the vigil will be taken and laid on Nikki's grave.
Nikki Allan's mother Sharon Henderson said she was still fighting for justice, 21 years after her daughter's murder. The 7-year-old schoolgirl was only metres from home, when she was stabbed and beaten, and her body left in a derelict warehouse.
Her family and friends marked the anniversary with a vigil in Sunderland.
