In June this year the Evening Standard reported 23 stabbings across London. Out of these 23 victims at least one has died, one was a twelve year old boy and one fourteen year old boy was stabbed by a thirteen year old. It is clear that London has a knife crime problem and a serious youth violence problem. Instead of citing percentage changes in recorded offences across London can you tell me what real work is being done to tackle this issue? What organisations have you met with to get a picture of the problem?
