The family of an 18-year-old murder victim has made an appeal for an end to the "no grass" culture they believe has prevented the teenager's killers being caught.
Student Yusuf Sonko was shot dead in Liverpool in June but police are yet to charge anyone over his murder.
His mother Khadija Sonko believes gun crime is worsening in the city due to a code of silence among teenage gangs.
She spoke out after figures revealed a sharp rise in gun crime in Merseyside.
Mrs Sonko, who works for a homelessness charity, told BBC Inside Out North West: "We need to come together and we need to fight this and we need to speak to our children. We need to say this is no good, this is not allowed."
She said the family lived in hope that someone out there has information that will help catch her son's killers - but only if they decide to come forward.
"If you really know about what happened to Yusuf, I'm sure somebody knows, please, please go tell police. And see justice done for Yusuf."

With my planned move up to Merseyside, The Gun culture is of concern, but its a problem across the UK, God knows the Crime rate where I am now is very high for a so-called "Rural Area" :(
