Wheels of choice for Hackney kids

A working shotgun has been found hidden in a children's play park in east London, it has emerged.

Police, responding to a tip-off, used a metal detector and sniffer dog to search the Apples and Pears play area in the park on Pearson Street, Hackney.

The area is well-known for its crime problems, especially in the schools.

One father, who did not want to be named, embodies the problem. He told us, "My missus is getting concerned about our kids schooling. There is too much drinking, drugs and violence. She says if I don't stop I can't home school them any more, but that means they'll have to join a gang."

We interviewed a twelve year old lad hanging around the park in question. He said, "I dream of a Hackney without violence, a Hackney without weapons. Then me and my mates could attack Hackney when they're not expecting it."

As we left the area we couldn't help noticing that a local firearms shop had a 'Back to School' sale advertised outside their door.
