Social Affairs Editor and Presenter

Violence has continued to grip the capital, with seven more people injured from stabbings since yesterday evening. The Met Police called an emergency meeting of community leaders to discuss a strategy for dealing with the issue, but those directly affected by violent crime in the city continue to be shocked by recent events. Patrick Boyce, whose son Jamel was left with life-changing injuries when he was stabbed, talks about the day it happened last October.
