Black Christian leaders are saying the Prime Minister’s comments about black communities do not recognise the work the community (especially black churches) are doing to tackle criminal gangs, reports Inspire Magazine.

Bishop Joe Aldred, the Secretary for Minority Ethnic Christian Affairs for Churches Together in England, said: “I’m not sure where the Prime Minister has been, or who he’s been talking to, if he thinks black communities have not been denouncing the gangs and gang activity".

Bishop Aldred went on to say "what we need is better support for those initiatives working with young people, parents, schools, and community groups, to help to give (particularly to our young boys) some sense of a better code of behaviour, aspiration, and a sense of belonging.”
