Going Underground’s Afshin Rattansi and his team investigate the atrocious rise in knife crime sweeping London – speaking to former chair of the Police Federation Steve White about London’s skyrocketing murder rate.
In this week’s episode, Rattansi takes a look at the 62 people have been killed on the streets of London in 2018 – outstripping New York’s murder rate in early April as knife crime in the UK capital reaches crisis levels.
Also in this episode, Grime MC Marci Phonix tells us why he believes institutional racism thrives in Theresa May’s hostile environment and performs his new song ‘Liberties.’
The Going Underground team also discuss ‘Drill music,’ and how the UK police force is censoring independent British musicians in an attempt to clamp down on crime – but is it a sign of desperation?
