Commenting on the appointment of Lib Peck as the director of London's VRU Niven Rennie, Director of the Scottish Violence Reduction Unit, said: "I wish the new director of London's VRU well. We know that violence isn't inevitable and communities working together can create lasting change.

Violence is preventable."
