The family of a man murdered on his doorstep and set alight after being wrongly branded a paedophile, today thanked the people of Bristol for their support since his death.
A tree was planted in memory of Iranian-born Bijan Ebrahimi at St Brendan's College, close to where he was killed last summer. Both Bristol's Mayor, George Ferguson and Lord Mayol Faruk Choudhury were at the ceremony.
Mr Ebrahimi's sister Manisha Moores said she hoped today was a sign of change in a city where murders like his should never have happened.
An investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission into officers' treatment of Mr Ebrahimi continues.
An investigation into the murder of a Bristol man, wrongly accused of being a paedophile is now looking at evidence dating back several years.

ITV News understands that one of the allegations being made against police over their handling of the Bijan Ebrahimi case is that an officer was too busy to see him because he was eating a pot noodle.
