The mother and father of a teenager who was brutally murdered 12 years ago are renewing an appeal to find his killer on the anniversary of his death.
The body of 17-year-old Anton Hyman was found in the River Brent on March 21, 2004 - Mother’s Day.
He had been stabbed and shot in back.
No one has ever been convicted of his killing.
His mother Vanessa Hyman told the Times she will never rest until her family gets justice.

“Anton is always on my mind. His sister was very young when he died so doesn’t really remember him and my other son never got to meet Anton.”
Since Anton’s death Ms Hyman has campaigned vigorously to find her son’s killer which included holding a peace march.
“I can’t rest until I know who ever killed my son is in jail, she said.
“They are dangerous and are still walking the streets where they can strike again.”
Delroy Elliott from Sudbury, Anton’s father, added: “Not a day goes by when I think about what my son could be doing now.
“We want and need justice.”
