A community worker from Ipswich says more needs to be done to stop young people in the area carrying knives.
It comes after 17-year-old Tavis Spencer-Aitkens was stabbed to death in Nacton earlier this month.
Terry Charles remembers Tavis as a "gentle giant" and says there needs to be a tougher deterrent to stop people carrying knives.
The police and council leaders have now set up an action plan promising change in the area.
Street lights will be kept on where Tavis was stabbed and more youth workers have been promised.
