Home Affairs Correspondent

He’s a former teacher turned cult television star who wants to use his experience to help stop young people getting caught up in knife crime.

Guz Khan, the creator and star of  ‘Man Like Mobeen’, hails from Coventry, which has witnessed a huge increase in knife attacks this year.

He says it’s all too easy to demonise young Black and Asian boys growing up on working class estates like his.

Our home affairs correspondent Darshna Soni has been to meet him.
