Porn posted on Damilola web forum

Damilola Taylor bled to death in Peckham eight years ago

Pornographic links have been posted on a website dedicated to Damilola Taylor.

Administrators of the website, linked to the Damilola Taylor Trust, said steps were being taken to remove hard-core links from a forum on the site.

Damilola, 10, was stabbed in the leg and bled to death in Peckham, south London, in November 2000. Two youths were detained for his killing in 2006.

The trust's chief executive Mike Jervis said he was "disappointed" that the links had been posted on the site.

Mr Jervis said: "We are disappointed, it just shows the challenges that all organisations, not just ours, have to overcome.

"We are trying to prevent knife crime and people are trying to defame our name and make our progress look shabby."

Danny and Rickie Preddie, who were aged 12 and 13 years old respectively at the time of the killing, were sentenced to eight years in youth custody for Damilola's manslaughter.
