A furious mother who stumbled upon her teenage son being stopped and searched has warned that the policy is ruining any hope of young people working together with the police.

Following the murders of three young people in consecutive months in the spring of 2018, BBC Three filmed a documentary called Our Borough: Love & Hustle, which followed the lives of a group of Tottenham residents.

In the documentary, June revealed how she'd been walking down the road when she came across her 'visibly petrified' son Kaymari, 16, being stopped and searched by the police, who wrongly accused him of having a weapon.

She later went to the police station to confront officers with the footage and made a formal complaint to an officer, warning that policies such as stop and search are destroying trust.

'If the young men won't come to you for help, then what happens?' she said. 'If they can't come to you guys, they take things into their own hands.'

She added: 'I'm not only fearing something happening to him from his peers, sometimes it's what happens from the police,' she said.
