Letter from the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan
I’m writing about a difficult issue I know we all care deeply about − tackling the scourge of violent crime.
Every death as a result of violent crime is an utter tragedy, leaving lives destroyed and families heartbroken. The level of violent crime in our city is clearly unacceptably high and − working together with community groups and others − I’m determined to do everything possible to tackle this problem head on.
