The innocent faces of teens murdered by gangs

More than 100 teenagers have been violently killed in the UK in 2007-08 (the vast majority in London), including victims of domestic violence and straightforward assault as well as gang-related deaths, BBC research has found.

The BBC News website has gathered information from police forces around the UK on every reported case of murder and manslaughter (homicide) in the 10-19 age group.

Figures include deaths resulting from apparent domestic incidents and straightforward assaults as well as gang-related violence.

In a year in which gangs and knife crime have featured regularly in headlines, collating and mapping the full information revealed that most police forces had not seen a case of teenage homicide.

The deaths were concentrated in a handful of locations with London suffering the highest number of young victims.

Other forces which reported multiple killings include Greater Manchester with five deaths; West Yorkshire, Merseyside and Strathclyde with four each and the West Midlands and South Yorkshire with three.

Official homicide statistics do not usually show 10-19 year-olds as a separate age group.

Instead they are split into 5-15 year-olds and 16-29 year-olds and the data is expressed as a rate per 1,000 of the population.

But Home Office figures supplied to BBC News indicate that the number of teen killings in England and Wales has remained largely stable in recent years.

That's not the point is it? For all those who were straying down the wrong path, they aren't going to get a chance to change now they are 6 foot under. Judge not lest ye shall be judged.
