But without a different source of information that Newsround provided, I would not have been able to engage properly in a discussion and, very occasionally, disagree or put an alternative point of view forward.

Stuart Ramsay | Posted 10.02.2015 | UK
Stuart Ramsay

Vigilantes fighting Mexico's drugs cartels are operating an unofficial, illegal jail where they have locked up gang members for "crimes" including murder. The discovery of the jail, high in the Sierra Madre mountains, provides new evidence of how far the government's complicity with the cartels and its failure to stop the violence has driven people to take the law into their own hands. ..

At a time when so many issues, from the cost of housing to university tuition fees to unemployment, impact heavily on Britain's youth there is an urgency to tackle this trend.
