It released a statement outlining the Mayor’s strategy for “making London safer for young people”.

The statement read: “Every time a young Londoner dies as a result of violent crime it is absolutely heart-breaking and leaves families and communities devastated.

“The causes of violent crime are extremely complex and involve deep-seated problems, like inequality, poverty, social alienation and a lack of opportunities for young people.

“These issues have been made far worse by the Government’s cuts over the past decade to the police and preventative services, like youth centres, council services and charities, as well as the growing illegal drugs market.”
