A march for peace is being held in Shoreditch this afternoon to stamp out knife and gun crime in London. Youth Against Crime not Crime Against You and Oh Mothers, are working together to raise awareness of gang crime. The march aims to raise awareness of the dangers of carrying weapons. The groups hope to speak to both parents and youths about how to keep away from gangs, or how to leave one.

Today's march follows the stabbing death of 15-year-old Joel Adesina. The teenager was stabbed on Bethnal Green Road, following a late night row on December 5.
