Murdered teenager Stephen Lawrence is going to given a blue heritage plaque later this month in tribute to his life, making him the third person to receive this kind of memorial.

The plaque is to be made by Nubian Jak Community Trust, the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust and the Luton African Caribbean Community Development Forum.

This unique plaque is usually placed on buildings or at areas to commemorate the connection between the location and a notable individual or event.

Jak Beula, founder of the Nubian Jak Plaque Commemorative Scheme, said of the decision to create the honour:

The world watched and saw the dignity and strength with which Doreen and Neville pursued justice for their son.

It is because of this that Stephen will never be forgotten. A promising light that still shines brightly even though if only in spirit.

The blue heritage plaque will be unveiled on 21 May at The Stephen Lawrence Centre in Deptford, south London.
