Revealed - Growing up in Glasgow

Glasgow has attracted negative headlines year after year, with claims crime, health, unemployment and gangs are big problems. It's been described as the murder capital of Britain, with young people four times more likely to be killed here than the the UK average. So what's it really like growing up in Glasgow and do teenagers here have any control over their futures?

Revealed meets teenagers Connor, Kieran and Liam to find out what it's like being out of school and struggling to find work. Presenter Charlotte talks to Peter who was stabbed in the back and saw his friend murdered by a gang member, while Adina speaks to 17 year old ex-gang member Darryn who says he's left gang violence behind him to play football for Scotland.
