A-Level student Anthony Walker, aged 18, died in hospital after a gang of up to four white men attacked him in Huyton, Merseyside in July 2005. He had been taunted at a bus stop with his white girlfriend and a male cousin. They fled but were set upon in a park.

As the couple waited for a bus outside the Huyton Park pub with Mr Walker’s cousin they were subjected to a “torrent of racial abuse” by a man in his 20s wearing a hooded top.

Anthony and his companions did not retaliate to the abuse and left to find another bus stop. But they were followed and as they walked through McGoldrick Park they were attacked by a gang of three or four men.

Anthony’s girlfriend and cousin saw a man carrying an axe bludgeon him, and ran to get help. When they returned minutes later they found him slumped on the ground with massive head injuries.
