On Saturday (December 3) a community engagement fair entitled Proud of Southwark, was held at Walworth Academy in Southwark, south London.

It featured a live panel debate, which gave the public a chance to look at issues behind August’s riots across Britain.

The panel discussion also sought to get community-led reasons on why young people get involved in - and solutions on tackling - gang culture and gun and knife crime, which were described during the discussion as a “cancer” that was hurting communities and destroying too many young lives.
