Francis Osei-Appiah tells the story of how within 18 months, he was groomed by a London gang and ended up with a nine year prison sentence. His tale describes the methods they used to get him involved and how quickly things escalated. We also talk about how he turned his life around through education and what he does now through his charity to teach young people, parents and teachers about the risks and signs of gangs. **Intro issue fixed**
