Former Brixton girl gang member pens autobiography

The true story of a young Londoner's spiral into a life of gangs, drugs and prison has inspired a new book.

'Street Girl' charts Nequela Whittaker's life growing up on a Brixton estate and explores a number of social issues including drug abuse and child exploitation.

Nequela hopes it will raise awareness of some of the dangers facing young women and also serve as a warning to others thinking of entering a similar world.
