The mother of Letisha Shakespeare, the teenager killed in a gangland shooting in Birmingham, is calling on youngsters in the Midlands to turn their backs on weapons.

At a charity football match in Wolverhampton, Marcia Shakespeare warned around 50 young men that there are no winners in gang culture. Letisha died alongside her friend Charlene Ellis at a New Year's Eve Party in 2003, innocent bystanders in a shoot out.
