Significant leads have emerged in the investigation of Stephen Lawrence’s murder after a fresh appeal on BBC Crimewatch, marking the 20th anniversary of his death.

A phonecall into the show could produce a potential eye witness to the attack, according to Det Ch Insp Clive Driscoll who described the response as “very encouraging”.

Speaking on Crimewatch Update last night, he said: “We have had many phone calls tonight but two in particular are, I would say, very significant.

“One could produce a potential eye witnesses to the attack, and one gives very good background information about suspects already known.

“In addition to that we have also had three phone calls about the green jumper or jacket and we will certainly be making enquiries around those bits of information to verify them.”
