A new workshop has launched to tackle knife crime in London

A film studio, where one of the Bridget Jones movies was made, has launched a new workshop - aimed at helping young Londoners involved or affected by knife crime, to enter the industry.

The 'Directing Lives' project is the brainchild of the West London Film Studios boss Frank Khalid - who has worked with the family of Gee Smith, who was murdered last year - to create the new scheme.

Gee's mother was at the launch.
