LaTonya Floyd spoke to David Lammy to mark a year since the death of her brother George at the hands of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin.

"What do you think needs to be done to prevent this happening to another family?" David wondered.

"Keep showing the world how they can be" she said, encouraging dialogue between citizens and police officers in a bid to ensure peace and respect.

"The Floyd family is going to keep fighting for everyone" she vowed, concluding by telling David that "this is not going to be over."
