PARENTS of murdered teens Jimmy Mizen and Rob Knox joined the London Mayor to launch a youth rehabilitation scheme.

Boris Johnson met Barry and Margaret Mizen and Sally and Colin Knox (all pictured above) at Sidcup Rugby Club, in Sydney Road, to announce his £23 million project, yesterday. Meeting members of Met-Track, a police-led sports group, the mayor announced a scheme to help first time young offenders and keep them separate from repeat offenders. Sally Knox, whose 19-year-old son was killed outside Sidcup's Metro bar last May, said: "It's fantastic that youths causes are getting this exposure."

Met-Track was holding a Sidcup launch event for school children with events including football and street dancing.
