The mother of murdered teenager Stephen Lawrence has revealed that she and her other son Stuart have been threatened.

Talking to BBC's Hardtalk, Doreen said she had warned her son, Stuart, to "be very careful when he's out".

Stuart claims he has been stopped by police up to 25 times because of his skin colour and has launched a legal battle against Britain's largest police force.

That complaint had led to the recent threats against 35-year-old Stuart, Mrs Lawrence said.

She added: "I had to say to him yesterday to be very careful when he's out, and I'm always worried about me being outside.

"I try not to be out too late when I'm travelling home and stuff so the fear is always there."
