News Crime is falling sharply

Burglary and murders are down again, but what’s driving this 20-year drop in offences?

Doreen Lawrence buried her son Stephen in Jamaica to avoid his grave being desecrated in the UK

Brian Cathcart: What Stephen Lawrence now means

Even after 18 years, the question of who killed Stephen Lawrence matters. It matters because murderers should always be called to account. It matters because the Metropolitan Police, although they can never put right what went wrong in 1993, need and want to atone. It matters because the Lawrences, who have endured so much, deserve to see justice done.

Tattoo you: Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig talk dragon girls

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, David Fincher, 156 mins (18) **<br />Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, 133 mins, Brad Bird (12A) ***

Hiring David Fincher to direct the American remake of The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo, the first part of Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy, must have seemed a smart move by the producers. The gothic matter of family secrets, ritual murders, dogged sleuthing and state corruption looks an ideal fit for a film-maker who's delved deep into the psycho-horrors of Se7en and Zodiac. Yet while you can depend on Fincher's immaculate visual style as much as on his nose for moral putrefaction, it's hard to see how he has enhanced the Swedish original, or even much changed it – aside from getting rid of the subtitles that US audiences find so tricky.

Album: Smith & Burrows, Funny Looking Angels (B-Unique)

As no particular fan of either The Editors or Razorlight, I didn't expect to find much enjoyment in this Christmas album by Editors singer Tom Smith and former Razorlight drummer Andy Burrows; but such is the obvious chemistry between the two that Funny Looking Angels is far and away the most engaging of this year's seasonal offerings.

In this photo illustration a school student eats a hamburger as part of his lunch which was brought from a fast food shop near his school, on October 5, 2005 in London, England. The British government has announced plans to remove junk food from school lunches. From September 2006, food that is high in fat, sugar or salt will be banned from meals and removed from vending machines in schools across England. The move comes in response to a campaign by celebrity TV chef Jamie Oliver to improve school meals.
