YouTube deletes 'violent' music videos

YouTube says, it has deleted more than half of the "violent" music videos that the UK's Metropolitan Police Commissioner asked it to take down.
Metropolitan Police Commissioner: Cressida Dick has blamed some videos for fuelling a surge in murders and violent crime in London - and has singled out 'Drill Music'.
'Drill music' is a style, originating on the South Side of Chicago. The genre is a prominent feature of Chicago hip hop, and is defined by its dark, grim, violent, nihilistic lyrical content and ominous beats.
The Police Commissioner had asked YouTube to delete all content which 'glamorises' violence.
