Damilola Taylor Who was Damilola Taylor?
Damilola Taylor was a 10-year-old schoolboy who died in November 2000.

He'd moved over from Nigeria with his family to live in south London so that his sister Bemi could have some medical treatment.

Damilola was fascinated by the internet and was keen to learn. He once wrote in an essay: "I want to be the very best, like no-one ever has been. The world we must defend and I know it is my destiny."
