Major gang fight in Haringey

Since I posted the piece on meeting three representatives from Haringey’s Youth Council and Youth Parliament and said how knife and gun crime was a key issue that worried them – we have had a major gang fight between gangs from Wood Green and Tottenham yesterday afternoon with four stabbings. I will try and get this raised in Parliament – as for all the Government’s knife or gun summits, the problem and the causes of the problem stumble on untouched. The police work hard – but it is clear that what is needed is a massive effort and resource – a continuing focus not just when the headlines hit if we are to impact this at all. So many issues involved – and they all need addressing!
