A Luton Crown Court judge is calling for the points of kitchen knives to be ground down to help prevent fatal stabbings.
Judge Nic Madge believes modifying the blades would significantly reduce the number of deaths and life-threatening injuries caused by knives.
There were more than 39,500 offences involving a knife or sharp instrument in England and Wales in 2017, a 22% increase compared with the previous year.
Judge Madge thinks his idea would go some way towards reducing the numbers.
