London mayor race: Stephen Lawrence friend named deputy

A friend of murdered teenager Stephen Lawrence has been named as a deputy to Liberal Democrat Brian Paddick if he is elected London mayor.

Duwayne Brooks was with the 18-year-old on the night he was killed in a racist attack in 1993 in Eltham, south London.

He became a Liberal Democrat councillor in Lewisham in 2009 and would be Brian Paddick’s deputy mayor for youth and communities.

Mr Brooks said he was honoured to have been given the role.
