How 3,000 teenagers are trying to combat London’s knife crime – BBC News

After Jake O’Neill’s friend was stabbed to death, he tried to divert teenagers away from crime.

On Saturday, 3,000 people – mostly teenage boys – rode through the capital, pulling tricks and stopping the traffic.

Jake, 19 – also known as Jake 100 – set up the Bikestormz project with his friend Mac after his best friend’s older brother was stabbed to death.

“I quite literally want people to put their knives down and pick their bikes up,” Jake told the BBC.

“Hence the slogan Knives Down, Bikes Up.”
