SOPHIE’S story shocked the nation and inspired tributes as it left an indelible mark on British culture and media.

To mark the 10-year anniversary, BBC Three created one-off drama Murdered For Being Different which tells the story of Sophie and Robert’s relationship, the attack and the aftermath.

The factual drama was given the backing of Sophie’s family, Robert and Lancashire Police.

In 2012, award-winning poet Simon Armitage published an elegy, a poem of reflection for the dead, Black Roses: The Killing of Sophie Lancaster which was adapted for BBC Radio 4 and then into an award-winning stage play which premiered at the Royal Exchange in Manchester and toured the North West.

It was later made into a film starring Accrington-born Julie Hesmondhalgh.

The former Coronation Street actor picked up female performance of the year at the Royal Television Society Awards in 2015 and was nominated for a TV Bafta while the film won best single drama of the year.

Sophie’s memory is honoured at the Bloodstock Outdoor Heavy Metal Festival in Derbyshire which has a Sophie Lancaster Stage while the Sophie Lancaster Foundation is supported at festivals across the country including Amplified and the Rebellion Punk Music Festival.

Make-up brand Illamasqua also has its own range of SOPHIE make-up.

To mark the anniversary, rock magazine Kerrang will feature Sophie’s image on the cover after the magazine spent two months with the foundation looking at the work they do to tackle hate crime.
