'Gangs And Youth Crime (HC 199)' follows a review of the scale and causes of gang culture in the UK following the 2011 summer riots.
The London Metropolitan Police Service reported in 2012, that they had identified 259 violent youth gangs and 4,800 gang nominals in 19 gang affected boroughs. Also in 2012, Greater Manchester Police identified 66 Urban Street Gangs and estimated the total number of gang members across Greater Manchester to be 886.
The Office of the Children's Commissioner's 2013 inquiry into child sexual exploitation in gangs and groups found that 2,409 children and young people were subject to sexual exploitation in gangs and a further 16,500 children at risk, using a survey period of August 2010-October 2011.
21 police forces in England identified that they had criminally active gangs operating in their area. In total, individual forces reported 323 gangs as being criminally active, with 16 being associated with child sexual exploitation.
London, while experiencing the most gang-related violence of any area in the country, has obtained only fourteen gang injunctions.
