On the way to church last Wednesday, my wife and I were stopped and questioned by the Police, just as everybody else on that road was. I finally got around to checking out what it was all about.
Well, it turns out that it’s all about Stephen Lawrence, the black teenager who was murder a decade back. A centre in his memory was due to be housed in an abandoned water authority building in Deptford. Last Tuesday night, it caught fire.
*The fire tore through the first and second floors of the disused former Thames Water pump house in Deptford at 8pm last night. *
Officers would not rule out the possibility it had been started “maliciously”. A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “We are treating it as suspicious at this early stage.”
Strange that this received so little press given that the original case was all over the media for years.
