The Light Foundation has organised an event to discuss the affects of knife crime on neighbourhoods in Preston.

It follows the very saddening and tragic deaths of Adam and Sarmad. Preston MP Sir Mark Hendrick and Byron Highton, the brother of the late Jon-Jo will be among the guests.

A spokesperson of Light Foundation said: "The increase in Knife crime, and the two most recent Murders of Adam Le Roi and Sarmad Ali-Saidi in Preston in the space of two months has been shocking, and frightening for those who have children and young adults.

"We have spoken to people in our community, from all backgrounds, who are seriously thinking of moving areas, which is sad. 

"The purpose of this event is to raise awareness on this very important subject, with the overall aim of working alongside key partners, to ensure that we build on more positive alternatives for our youth." 

The broadcast will be on Thursday 21 January at 7.30pm.
