Knife Crime – Meet People Fighting to End Knife Culture
With knife possession at a 15-year high in the West Midlands, BBC News met the people trying to stop knife culture.
Alison Cope’s son was stabbed in the heart and died, she now goes into schools to speak to pupils about the dangers.
PC Rob Pedley also talks to children and teenagers to educate them of the risks and the consequences.
It is interesting to learn how different communities find themselves caught up in this crime situation. Locals often forced to follow gangs ‘orders’ in order to stay safe. To try and separate from knife scene is a struggle in some areas.
