The number of knife-related hospital admissions is at its highest level in England for five years, analysis of figures by the BBC shows.

NHS figures show there were an average of 12 knife assault-related hospital admissions every day in 2016-17. A consultant at one hospital trust in Yorkshire said it was seeing a knife wound "probably every day or every second day now".

The Home Office has announced £1m funding to help tackle knife crime. Surely that funding should be given direct to the Police who are in desperate need for extra funding following brutal cuts.

There were 34,700 crimes involving knives in England and Wales in 2016/17, with the number of offences increasing by a third since 2012/13, according to the Home Office. I firmly believe this rise is down to a lack of visible policing and reduction in use of Stop and search powers.

The Government urgently need to reverse the brutal cuts to policing and allow the police to do their jobs and use the powers afforded to them in law.
