BEN KINSELLA TRUST

A cop has teamed up with the Ben Kinsella Trust and Arsenal FC to hold a football tournament against knife crime this Saturday in Queensland Road.

Hundreds of people joined Ben Kinsella’s family for a sponsored 10k walk along the Regent’s Canal on Saturday – with £2,800 so far raised for the anti-knife crime trust set up in his name.

Tomorrow is the 10th anniversary of Ben Kinsella’s murder. His sister, Brooke, spoke frankly to James Morris about the impact it continues to have on her family and the state of knife crime in Islington in 2018.

The new police chief for Islington and Camden has already launched a taskforce to tackle violence – and said significant reductions are being made in moped crime.

It’s the 10th anniversary of Ben Kinsella’s senseless murder on June 29. The anti-knife crime trust set up in his name is marking the tragedy with a 10k walk in his memory.

A restored century-old cart was the centrepiece of an anniversary trek by the 5th Islington Scout Group on Sunday morning.

The heroic Islington firefighters who rescued Angel flood victims joined the Pearly King and Prince of Finsbury to be given the freedom of the borough last night.

A remarkable teenager who travelled to Britain on his own and now helps give a voice to kids in care leads the pack at tonight’s civic awards.

Believe it or not, it’s a year since the town hall and the Gazette asked you to nominate Islington’s biggest community champions for the 2017 civic awards.

A member of the public yesterday found a knife hidden in a bush outside Finsbury Library – where the anti-knife crime Ben Kinsella Exhibition is housed.
