The Report: Why is knife crime on the rise in Britain?


Knife crime is on the rise according to reports. The UK’s top police officer, Cressida Dick, has said there is “some link” between falling police numbers and a rise in violent crime. With the number of knife casualties rising, who is to blame? Is there a link between crimes and socio- economic factors. And what can be done to protect our youth?
