“Members of the public can expect to see an increased police presence and we may be speaking to them as we carry out our door-to-door enquiries.

“We know every knife crime is shocking for the community as it always has potentially serious consequences and I want to reassure the public that we always act swiftly and robustly to reports of knife crime. If you know of anyone who carries a knife, please let us know so we can ensure it doesn’t end up on the streets.
