BBC Pop Up: Life in Baton Rouge's most dangerous neighbourhood

Plagued by violence and poverty, the postal code 70805 is considered to be the most dangerous part of Baton Rouge, the capital of the US state of Louisiana.

Or that at least is how outsiders, most of whom only drive past the neighbourhood along either Interstate 110 or the ironically named Scenic Highway, view the community.

Over the course of the month BBC Pop Up spent in Baton Rouge, Benjamin Zand visited the area several times and spoke to many residents.

He asked them what life is really like in the so-called "worst neighbourhood" and what they would like to see change.
