  7. 7. Poverty <ul><li>Glasgow is blighted by &quot;epidemic&quot; levels of drug and alcohol abuse and has the same number of teenage gangs as London, according to a think tank . </li></ul><ul><li>It warned that there were 170 teenage gangs in Glasgow - the same number as in London </li></ul><ul><li>The proportion of young people not in employment, education or training was about 18% - 50% more than the Scottish average and roughly twice that of Manchester . </li></ul><ul><li>. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Facts <ul><li>KNIFE seizures have soared in gang hotspots as police try to break the generations-old culture that wrecks communities . </li></ul><ul><li>However, residents of the area with the most knife seizures - Wellhouse in the East End - say they are sceptical about anti-knife campaigns, which they fear may be &quot;publicity stunts&quot; and happen too infrequently. </li></ul><ul><li>A grandfather who has lived in the area for more than 25 years said: &quot;Whatever the police say, they are rarely here.
