Sixth man could have been charged over Stephen Lawrence's murder, cop claims

Clive Driscoll’s work led to the convictions of Gary Dobson and David Norris in 2012 for the 1993 racist murder. Three others were suspected.

The retired DCI said a witness named a sixth but his team was disbanded before he could probe the information.

Clive said: “It was, I thought, a very good line of inquiry — I can’t lie.

“A witness had come forward and had given evidence. Came forward and said ‘this is what happened’.”

The man, never named, was arrested in 2014 but told he’d not be charged.

Clive told of his sorrow that his team was disbanded and said he was “optimistic” he could have secured more convictions if kept on.

He said: “People often ask me am I angry. I’m not angry, I thought it was a privilege to work on that case."

Stephen’s mum Doreen was seen yesterday with London Marathon runners raising cash for the trust set up in his name.
