YOUNGSTERS are being warned about the price they pay if they get involved in crime through a series of posters designed by a group of teenagers.

The teenagers, who have been in trouble themselves, reflected on their experiences and channelled their creative energies to get the lessons they'd learnt out to their friends and communities.

The young designers, aged between 13 and 18, created the posters as part of a reparation scheme.

The posters will be displayed in Ideas Stores, youth clubs and council buildings across the East End.

The scheme aims to get young people working together to consider the consequences their actions have on themselves and people around them.
