Kelso Cochrane, an Antiguan man who had come to the UK in 1954, was stabbed to death in an attack on May 17, 1959 whilst walking home in West London. His murder came at the height of racial tension in Notting Hill during the 1950s and nights of violent clashes between the area's Caribbean and white residents in August 1958. The 33-year-old was a carpenter and an aspiring lawyer. 62 years since his death, Kelso's murder remains unsolved and his family say they are still "broken" by the injustice.

." " The world needs to know that Kelso's life matters," Ms Christian told My London. She added: " We need to tell his story - Kelso suffered a terrible injustice and still is till this day. " The publicity of Kelso's murder wasn't available in those days as it was in the Stephen Lawrence murder - that case had some justice. We're yet to receive some kind of justice for our Kelso." Kelso Cochrane's murder was said to be the Stephen Lawrence murder of its day. Two men were arrested following Kelso's murder but they were later released without conviction and Kelso's clothing destroyed in 1968. Read More Related Articles
