Stockwell shooter Anthony McCalla 'was let down'


A south London council, which was charged with the care of one of those responsible for shooting and paralysing a five-year-old girl in Stockwell, has been severely criticised by inspectors.

Thusha Kamaleswaran was shot by a gang firing into her uncle's shop in March 2010.

One of the gang, Anthony McCalla, 19, was known to numerous agencies and regarded as having a high risk of reoffending and causing harm to others.

He had been in care in Lambeth and was a top priority for the local youth offending team but a local gang mediator has claimed he fell between the intervention gaps once he turned 18.
