The dawn of the 'gangbo'


From today, police forces will have new powers to help them deal with gang violence across England and Wales.

The gang injunctions will give them the authority to ban an individual from meeting other members, going into a rival gang's area or wearing clothing associated with a certain group.

Reporter Debbie Randle has been to visit one project in Nottingham where they use football to try to ease tensions between those from rival gang areas.
