In a rare television interview PC Keith Blakelock's widow, Elizabeth, has spoken of the torment caused by listening to evidence on how the officer was killed and said the attackers had deprived her sons of a father.
Elizabeth said: "You wouldn’t do that to an animal, let alone a human being. That human being was lying there begging you, please, begging you for his life. And still, you went at him with whatever implements, weapons. You’ve deprived these boys of a father. "
The family of PC Keith Blakelock have waited 29 years for justice and their wait goes on. Anyone with information can contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or the Metropolitan Police Incident Room - 020 8203 4617.
