Dear Information Management, Ok so you admit you spent £400k on moving young people around the borough due to the fear of gang violence. I wanted an exact figure for the year 2015 how much you spent and purpose of journeys ie "to school then home" or was it to other destinations? I cant remember the article I read but clearly it was true. Thanks

Yours sincerely,

katie carnajio
