THE campaign started in East London for shops to become safe havens’ for youngsters in danger is spreading across the capital.
Members of the London Citizens organisation who began the campaign in Tower Hamlets and Hackney were interviewed live on this-morning’s BBC London’s Breakfast Show from the radio car at the East London Advertiser, the first commercial offices involved in the campaign in the East End.
They included Matthew Bolton, who organised last Wednesday’s Mile End rally to kickstart the campaign in Tower Hamlets, and recruitment agency owner Sue Read who has joined the campaign from Greenwich.
They are pictured being interviewed at the radio car at Cambridge Heath Road in Bethnal Green by BBC reporter Chris Wands at 8.20am.
