Unity: a concert for Stephen Lawrence, will also feature performances from Plan B, Tinie Tempah and Jessie J.

What about a concert for PC Blakelock murdered by black thugs.

Winston Silcott and two other men were jailed for the crime in 1987 but later had their convictions quashed on the grounds they were considered unsafe.

Detectives are understood to have had their confidence buoyed by the conviction in January of Gary Dobson and David Norris for the racist murder of Stephen Lawrence.

The officers believe that if such a long standing and legally complex case can be resolved then justice can also finally be secured for Pc Blakelock.

Pc Blakelock, 40, was attacked as he tried to protect firefighters who were tackling a supermarket blaze at the height of the riot on October 6, 1985.

After stumbling, the father of three was surrounded by a mob of black youths screaming “Kill the pig”.
