A new ground-breaking documentary has revealed footage of young rapper Myron Yarde in the months before his murder.

Gangland on Channel 5 offers insight into the mindset of gang members across the capital, with much of the footage filmed by themselves.

Last night the second episode in the two-part series featured the death of 17-year-old Shaquan Fearon who was fatally stabbed while walking to a youth centre in Brockley just over a year ago.

His mum Sharon Fearon was filmed over the past year, with cameras showing the harrowing moment her son was buried in Grove Park cemetery last November.

Describing the evening Shaquan was killed, she said: “It was so bad. It wasn’t a nice thing to see him on the floor in so much blood.

“When I see his eyes going over that’s when I started to scream.”

The documentary maker filmed Ms Fearon from the day she first saw the two teenagers accused of murdering her son in court until the boys walked free after three trials collapsed.

In July she told News Shopper how she cannot grieve until her son’s killer is convicted.

Viewers watched as Ms Fearon invited the cameras into her home in Crofton Park, where she has kept Shaquan’s room as it was since his death.

“I’m standing here thinking my son is coming back and he’s not coming back,” she told cameras.

The documentary also showed footage of young rapper Myron Yarde, known as MDot, who was filmed in New Cross and Catford recording a music video with friends.

Young rapper Myron Yarde was killed in New Cross in April.

The youngster was stabbed to death in April this year after a fight broke out in New Cross.

Friends of Myron talked on camera about the struggle of staying safe on the streets - including fellow rapper Showkey who was killed in Peckham last month.

The documentary’s director, Bafta nominee Paul Blake, said he found the deaths of Myron and Showkey “incredibly sad”, recalling how excited MDot had been about making music.

Mr Blake told the Guardian: “We are telling this story because it means they are not faceless, they’re not just some line in the newspaper that we all move on from instantly or don’t even bother to read about in the first place.

“This is warfare on our own doorstep and young kids are dying.”

The first episode aired last week told the story of a former Woolwich dealer who lived a “footballer’s lifestyle” making more than £2,000 a day through selling drugs.

The episode delved into the life of former Woolwich Boys gang member Jordy Wanghi, 22, who described life growing up on a deprived estate with drug dealing on his doorstep.

At just 18, he was reputed to be one of the leading drug dealers in London and enjoyed the lavish lifestyle he could suddenly afford pedalling £2,200 worth of drugs a day.

Talking about growing up in Woolwich near Tivoli Gardens he said: “Living around here, it’s kind of a struggle, it was a struggle “It’s a sad lifestyle around here because nobody had anything around here.

“You can imagine being brought up around here, you ain’t really got no hope.”

Jordy described how he had everything he had ever wanted, from no-expense-spared holidays to Ibiza to top-of-the-range cars.

“How can you be humble when it came from nothing?” he said. “It felt amazing. I was living like a footballer.

“I loved that lifestyle, I thought it would never end.”

But drug dealing is not all glamour, as viewers saw in graphic detail, when a gang member demonstrated how they plug thousands of pounds worth of drugs inside their bodies.

Jordy was sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison, after pleading guilty to possession with intent to supply class A drugs.
