Dead explorer fights knife crime
As the government battles to steer youngsters away from gangs and knife crime, one group has enlisted the help of a 19th century explorer.
Elders from London's Congolese community have begun a scheme to teach teenagers about Sir Henry Morton Stanley.
He was one of the Victorian age's greatest adventurers and helped to open up the Congo basin.
The scheme hopes to give children with Congolese backgrounds a sense of
identity and stop them getting involved in gangs.
