A MARCH against knife crime is set to take place this weekend after the alleged murder of a Bournemouth man.

Residents across the conurbation are being urged to stand against knife crime and 'come up with solutions' for young people. 

It comes following the tragic death of Cameron Hamilton during the early hours of Saturday morning.

The 18-year-old former Bournemouth School pupil died after a fight erupted in the Lower Gardens. 

Mourners have since transformed the Square into a sea of colour with bouquets of flowers and moving tributes. 

His family has paid their respects in a joint statement, which said: “We have not lost our beautiful boy, he has been taken.

“We don't want this to be what Cam is remembered for, we want him to be remembered for the funny, kind and wonderful person he is and always will be.”

Lee Adams, a friend of the Hamiltons, is now organising a march to ‘stand against knife crime’ in the town and to deter young people from violence.

He told the Echo that there will be t-shirts and banners at the event as well as music, face painting and inspirational speakers.

The march is set to take place in Bournemouth Square on Saturday, August 12 at midday, with hopes of marching again the following weekend. 

A GoFundMe page has been set up to fund the rally, titled 'Together against knife crime- Bournemouth.'

At the time of writing, a separate GoFundMe fundraiser - 'For the family of Cameron Hamilton' - has raised over £4,000 in donations. 

Dozens of tributes have been left in the town centre for Cameron, including flowers, balloons, candles and notes.

Friends and loved ones have left messages of remembrance, calling Cameron ‘a kind soul’ that will never be forgotten.

Mourners have described him as a 'kind, caring and selfless' person, that will always be in their hearts.
