Dame Cressida Dick, the Met Police commissioner, said she and the investigator in charge of the case had met with Stephen’s parents to explain the move.
The parents of murdered teenager Stephen Lawrence have said they will never give up hope of getting justice for their son as the investigation into his death was shelved by police. They will never give up the fight until ALL those responsible for Stephen death are brought to justice.
