a unique immersive and educational video experience; a reimagined version of the classic Shakespeare love story set in Britain’s most dangerous place to live.

 

According to David Tooley’s recent report in MK Citizen  is believed that seven gangs are largely responsible for the drugs, robbery, and child sexual exploitation crime across Milton Keynes.

Taking from David’s article, Milton Keynes Council’s social care staff and the city’s  Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) have researched 451 individuals, identifying over 1,800 links between them to come up with the numbers.

Research reported to the SaferMK Partnership on January 31 2019 pointed to some linking factors.

The partnership includes representatives of the police, the fire service and Milton Keynes Council. The report read: “Of the 34 individuals, 25 had been subject to Youth Offending Team (YOT) intervention at some point.

“Of these 92 per cent had significant speech, language and communication needs. The needs had not previously been identified within an education setting prior to the young people working with the YOT.”

In the medium term the partnership wants to develop an understanding of the gangs challenge in Milton Keynes that “informs current challenges and future success.”

Cllr Hannah O’Neill, the council’s deputy leader and cabinet member for health and wellbeing, said work was on-going and there has already been “some great outcomes”.

Yellow Media Group’s proposal is a docu-drama project, in association with SaferMK Partnership; a reimagined version of the classic Shakespeare love story, Romeo & Juliet involving real people on both sides of gangland culture in a city that’s been described as Britain’s most dangerous town to live in, according to Police statistics.
