Hundreds of people have turned out for a public meeting in Peckham to discuss the recent spate of violence in south-east London:

Southwark Council leader Nick Stanton said all those who attended the meeting "demonstrated huge spirit and determination".

"They proved how strong and tight-knit the people of Peckham are and how they will not be beaten by the very small minority who get involved in serious criminal activity.

"The vast majority of those who live in the area are good, honest, hard-working people.

"I was particularly encouraged by the willingness of the community to seek positive solutions in which we all work together to build a safer Peckham."
