A PRODUCER who has worked with Boyz II Men, Jamelia and All Saints is helping run a drugs workshop and music project for young people.

Linton Lee Bennett, joined by Fame Academy finalist Audley Anderson, is leading the Tuned In course for BYPASS young person's drug and alcohol service in Widmore Road, Bromley.

The charity helps young people aged 10 to 17 who have addiction problems, but not everybody taking part in the project is a service user.

The aim of the scheme, which runs until September 4, is to encourage children to express themselves creatively.

The youngsters recorded their own albums with songs about their personal experiences on Monday.

A spokesperson for BYPASS said: "It's going really well - they have just done their E.Ps so now we are going to focus on the marketing side. Everybody seems to be enjoying themselves."

All the youngsters involved in the Bromley Drug Action Team sponsored scheme are from Bromley and have different levels of experience in the creative arts.
