A memorial service is being held in Brixton today to celebrate the lives of young knife crime victims.
The Love2Remember memorial will celebrate the lives of four young South London boys all of whom were victims of knife crime on the capital's streets in the last ten tears.
Junior Nkwelle, Damilola Taylor, Edvin Johnson and Zac Olumegbon, all lost their lives in street attacks. Damilola was just ten years old. The oldest, Edvin, was nineteen.
The aim of the memorial is to remember their lives, not the way they died.
The mothers of three of the victims will be there and the congregation will hear from former footballer Fabrice Muamba alongside actor and director Noel Clarke.
Arnold Oceng - the Brixton-raised actor who's now making his way in Hollywood will also be attending.
