Actor and activist Idris Elba has launched the ‘Don’t Stop Your Future’ campaign, which demands UK Government take immediate action to prevent serious youth violence.

This morning, at Parliament Square, there was an activation where the square was filled with folded last outfits from some of the young victims of 2023.

In conjunction with this, Idris Elba has just dropped a single which features DB Maz and is produced by Fraser T Smith and FaNaTiX. "Knives Down" urges Parliament to take urgent action, having neglected addressing the issue for too long.

Idris Elba and DB Maz's single, "Knives Down" is out now.
