Should schools teach pupils about the dangers of weapons?
Ex-EastEnders actress Brooke Kinsella has said schools should teach pupils about the dangers of gun and knife crime. Will this improve the safety of young people?
She told the BBC that teenagers appeared to carry weapons for two main reasons - "fear and fashion" and that real people on the streets would be able to provide the solutions.
Ms Kinsella has been a campaigner since her 16-year-old brother Ben was stabbed 11 times on a night out in Holloway, north London. She recently became a government adviser and has produced a report on youth violence.
What is the best way to tackle youth violence? What part can schools and parents play? Are ordinary people part of the solution?
