Brian Paddick: Justice for Stephen Lawrence is a great relief

"It is a great relief that after so many years people have been brought to justice for the tragic death of Stephen Lawrence.

"Many lessons have been learnt and changes made as a result of this case, but there is much more to be done before all Londoners have trust and confidence in the police."

On the request of the police, Brian Paddick acted as an intermediary for Duwayne Brooks, Stephen Lawrence's best friend, during the trial. Duwayne and Brian have been friends for several years, having first met while Brian was Borough Commander of Lambeth. Duwayne is now a Liberal Democrat councillor in Lewisham.
