YOUNG people from Stevenage are making their small screen debuts in a new project.

Youngsters who go to the Hyde Out in Shephall, Stevenage, which is run by the MBA Association, were asked to take part in Senseless.

The project is the brainchild of writer Mark Straker and tackles the controversial subjects of knife crime and anti-social behaviour among teenagers.

Over the coming weeks young people will be given the opportunity to make a documentary on these issues.
