Stephen Lawrence killers Gary Dobson and David Norris lose appeal bid

The two men jailed for the racist murder of black teenager Stephen Lawrence have lost the first round of their attempt to challenge their convictions at the Court of Appeal.

Gary Dobson and David Norris, who continue to protest their innocence, were given life sentences at the Old Bailey in January.

Their applications for permission to appeal have been rejected by a single judge after consideration of the papers.

The decision was confirmed by a spokeswoman for the Judicial Office.
