The use of the word "gangs" to describe youths who hang around committing crime could make their activities worse, a study has claimed.

The Youth Justice Board conducted a major study on "gangs" and concluded that the term is "inappropriate". It also suggested replacing the phrase "gang-related" with "group-related". The new terminology for gang should be something nice and cuddly like "cluster".

The "crimes" committed by these "clusters" should not be called "crimes" as it makes it look as if they are doing something "wrong", they are just being misunderstood and the new terminology should reflect this.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
