Relatives, friends and campaigners for justice for Jean Charles de Menezes are calling for a permanent memorial to be placed outside the south London Tube station where he was killed by police in July 2005.

They gathered at the site on Wednesday of last week, the fourth anniversary of Jean Charles’ death, and unveiled an image of the planned mosaic.

Transport for London says it is talking to relatives to find a suitable site for the memorial.

There is a temporary memorial outside the station with tributes from supporters.
