East London Gangs

Below is a list of gangs, crews, urban street collectives etc. from East London - last updated in mid-2012.

Please read the About Gangs pages in conjunction with these lists, weary of the fact 'Gangs' terminology is hugely ambiguous. 

It is important to note that a wide ranging type of predominantly street gangs, or youth groups with collective identities, are listed within the site, some more serious than others. Of all groups listed that are currently active only 35% have been involved in rivalries which have resulted in murders. These gangs are located primarily in inner-city areas.

  1. Hey guys,

    Good Boy Wolf are an internationally awarded film director and would love to do a short film on the gang rivalry in London.

    Good Boy Wolf would like to show your rivalry off. Who is the biggest, who is the best.... We would simply follow you around, ask questions, let you voice any opinion what so ever and how you enjoy the gang.

    We would love to share our ideas with you and because we are a crew of only two, we would never cause any disruption.

    It would be great to discuss further, and I look forward to hearing from you.
