An inquest into the death of a mother whose shooting sparked the 1985 Brixton riots is due to take place today. Cherry Groce was paralysed below the waist when she was accidentally shot by police looking for her son, Michael, during an early morning raid on her home.
Mrs Groce's son Lee Lawrence, who was 11 years old when he saw his mother shot, said:
