    So very sad. Another totally sensless stabbing on the streets of London. As we know most but not all stabbings are sadly gang related.

    When are these young people going to learn to get minds of their own.Get away from gangs and other people that control them and a build a life and future for themselves.

    Many of these youngsters are bright and with a good education and support network could have great futures ahead of them.

    Much more needs to be done to tackle gang crime knife crime and violent crime on the streets of London. Far too many young people are being seriously injured or needlessly losing their lives and for what ??

    Totally agree Graham. This now needs to be top priority for the current Mayor of London sadiq Khan.

    As Sadiq Khan, In his position of the Mayor of London is the equivalent of the Police and Crime Commissioner and is responsible for the totality of policing in the capital (outside of the City of London). It is with in his power to do this and provide the extra funds needed to tacke these violent crimes.

    In London, the elected Mayor – Sadiq Khan, is the equivalent of the Police and Crime Commissioner and is responsible for the totality of policing in the capital (outside of the City of London).

    So I hope he will be looking in to this latest incident and then provide the extra funds to employ more Police Officers and tackle these violent and needless crimes on the streets of London. Which are getting totally out of hand.
