  • Little Tusha was five years old last year, and she loved going to her uncle's shop in Stockwell near Brixton, and was caught on CCTV camera skipping amid the stacks of food displayed on shelves.

    The same CCTV footage showed three young thugs skipping over her small frame minutes later, as she lay prostrate on the floor, blood coming out of her, after they had chased each other guns blazing. The poor little girl had a bullet through her spine, leaving her paralysed for life. She will never skip again, nor will she realise her ambition to become a dancer.
