Two men were found guilty on Tuesday of the racist murder of black teenager Stephen Lawrence, a landmark case that exposed racism in the police.

Gary Dobson, 36, and David Norris, 35, were convicted, the Press Association reported, after a six-week trial at the Old Bailey that hinged on new scientific evidence presented by prosecutors.

Lawrence, 18, was stabbed to death at a London bus stop in April 1993, in an unprovoked attack by a gang of white youths who shouted racist abuse.
