In a letter to the South London Press, Duwayne Brooks, our Libdem candidate in the election for Mayor of Lewisham, described his heartache at being told of another death among our young people and offered his condolences to the families.

He said: ” For years, I have been trying to highlight the issue of serious youth violence in our borough but it has been constantly denied and I have been continuously blocked. I tried to implement an early intervention procedure to help target those nine to thirteen year olds who get caught with the wrong groups. I was told it’s not needed. Now we have another unnecessary death where a number of families will be in pain for something that was and is preventable.”
