Youths from Brent and Peckham kicked the ‘postcode wars’ to the curb by taking part in a football match organised by a peace charity.

The event by London Football Journeys (LFJ) and QPR in the Community Trust was held to break down the barriers caused by territorial feuds.

Students from St Thomas the Apostle College in Peckham, came down to Copland Community School in Cecil Avenue, Wembley, to take part in the match on Saturday.

Establishing in 2012, LFJ brings together 11-15-year-olds from different areas to support them to become active and confident members of their communities, feel less threatened to travel across London and meet young people from other areas
