Breakdown of London Hoods & Gangs
While not the only place in the United Kingdom where there is street activity, but no other city in England or the U.K. has as much street activity than the London gangs. Many years ago, London was the largest and most famous city in the world, large enough to attract various ethnic groups and cultures from all around the world.
With many different ethnicities settling in London, the city would eventually become a melting pot of London gangs. This included white, Yardies (Jamaican and Caribbean), Turkish, African, Arab, Eastern European, and South Asian street gangs. Basically, people from places like Russia, Turkey, Jamaica, Bulgaria, Albania, India, or Somali, just to name a few, have found their way into the streets of London.
Violence is not close to being on the level of American street gangs, with a very minimal presence of firearms, however knife attacks and stabbings are more common. One thing that is undeniable is that every ethnic group has their hands in some type of illicit activity. Many outsiders find London as a goldmine, with much involvement in human trafficking and prostitution, high end thefts, fraud and identity theft, narcotics , and just about everything goes on in the streets of London.
While there were London gangs like Bloods and the Crips, in which mostly phased out by the 2020s, London hoods mostly consist of local cliques and affiliations. While in America there are ‘hoods with blocks of single family homes, in London, the hoods are mostly centered around housing estates, which are similar to public housing projects.
