A young black man lay dying in a south London bus stop. His friend called frantically for help while a gang of white teenagers who had stabbed him ran off. Two members of that gang were sentenced today for the 1993 murder of Stephen Lawrence, but three more remain at large. Judge Colman Treacy today sentenced Gary Dobson to at least 15 years and 2 months in jail, and David Norris to at least 14 years and 3 months for the murder of the teenager, and urged police to continue looking for new leads in the case.
