A former England and LA Lakers basketball player spent a week shooting hoops with young people in Streatham.

Steve Bucknall coached youngsters from across Lambeth at a basketball camp, organised as part of Lambeth Council’s summer activities programme.

Lucie Howkins, extended services manager for the Streatham schools partnership, said: “The idea of the camp was to offer young people the opportunity to learn a new skill, meet new friends and have some fun during the holiday break.”

Some 30 young people attended the coaching sessions held every day at Dunraven School.
