A peaceful march against knife crime is being held in Barkingside to take a stand against youth violence in the borough.
The march tomorrow, on Saturday, October 11, coincides with the first anniversary of the death of 23-year-old Moses Mayele, who was stabbed in Hainault last year.
The campaign, called Redbridge Says No, aims to unite the community through peace.
Organiser Kerry Kay said: "We have had enough, and for me personally I feel that we really need to promote peace rather than fight violence.
"It's important for the younger generation to see that we can do that as a community."

All welcome. Gather from 12.45pm for a 1pm start.
