Lawrence tribute

26th January 1996 at 00:00
More than 1,500 people, including his former pupils, gathered in Westminster Cathedral last Monday to pay tribute to Philip Lawrence, the headteacher who was stabbed to death last December while going to the aid of a student outside St George's RC School in Maida Vale, north-west London.

The memorial service was conducted by Cardinal Basil Hume who praised him "as a man we instinctively knew to be not only good at his job, but a man who inspired confidence and affection".
