The ‘knife angel’ removing weapons from British streets

Last week we looked at the growing crisis on our streets, with 2021 on course to become one of the worst on record for teenage homicides. Years of interventions and official initiatives seem to be making little impact, with 18 young people having been stabbed to death in London so far this year.

We have been out with one community organisation, run by a man whose own experience of being stabbed has led him to try to rid the streets of knives.
