The event, held at the Bang FM studios in High Street, Harlesden forms part of the shadow minister’s youth crime pledge, a campaign to encourage youngsters to call for a mayor who will take on action on youth crime.

Cllr Zaffar Van Kalwala, Labour councillor for Stonebridge, who will be chairing the meeting said: “This is a unique opportunity for young people from Brent to speak about an issue that is important to them.

“We need to engage more young people in order to understand and solve problems that are affecting them.”

Youths will get the chance to put their questions to the shadow minister about combating youth violence as well as engage in a series of discussions on how the issue can be tackled in Brent.
