Stephen Lawrence's brother 'stopped by police 25 times'

Stephen Lawrence's brother has claimed he has been stopped by police up to 25 times because of his skin colour as he launches a legal battle against Britain's biggest force.

Stuart Lawrence, 35, alleges officers from Scotland Yard have repeatedly targeted him as part of a sustained campaign of harassment.

The teacher, whose teenage brother was murdered in a racist attack, has now consulted lawyers over the "ludicrous" police action.
