The force also urged parents to speak to their children about the devastating impact of carrying knives.

“No matter where you live, knife crime is an issue which affects us all.

“While many young people don’t carry knives, you have a role to play in helping your child make the right choice on this subject.

“If there is one person your child will listen to, it’s you. They respect you more than you think.”
