Campaigner: '70% of people who give me knives are white'



Farron Alex Paul joins Sky’s Kay Burley in the studio to share what he is personally doing to tackle knife violence in the UK.

The anti-knife crime campaigner offers young people shop vouchers in exchange for weapons so they don’t have to go to police.

There have been 39 people killed following stabbings in the UK since the beginning of 2019. In March so far, three 17-year-olds have been killed in London and three teenagers in Birmingham died in the space of 12 days in February.

Politicians and police in the UK are now coming up with solutions to tackle this knife crime epidemic.
