Almost 150 knifes have been recovered in amnesty bins in Cambridgeshire during a week long campaign.

Over the last year there has been a 37% increase in the number of people carrying weapons.

Police have been teaching young people about the risks of carrying knives.

Officers in Peterborough took mobile bins out into the community in an effort to reach more people.

I’m pleased with the response from the public and with the educational work that was carried out as part of the campaign. Taking more than 100 knives off the streets plays a part in making the county safer.

Our messages have been clear throughout this campaign. Knives ruin lives. Those who carry knives not only put people’s lives at risk, but also face a lengthy prison sentence and a hefty fine.

Dad fears for son's life after extradition decision

The father of hacking suspect Lauri Love has said he believes his son will commit suicide if he is extradited to the United States.

The Rev Alexander Love, from Stradishall near Newmarket, told ITV Anglia: "I sat with him one day and said 'Lauri, what are you going to do if all else fails and they're going to take you?' and he said 'Dad, I won't be going. I'm not leaving you and Mum.'

"He's a 31-year-old genius and he lives in what I call the old folks' home with us because that's how he copes with life."

The Home Secretary Amber Rudd has signed an order for Lauri Love to be extradited to America where he's accused of hacking into US government computer networks.

Mr Love, from Stradishall near Newmarket, is alleged to have stolen significant amounts of data from US agencies including the federal Reserve, Nasa and the FBI.

He could face up to 99 years in prison if found guilty.

A number of MPs had called on Barack Obama to block his extradition on the grounds that they were "concerned for the safety" of Mr Love, who has Asperger's Syndrome.

However, that campaign appears to have fallen on death ears with the Home Secretary confirming that he will now go on trial in the States.

On Monday 14 November, the Secretary of State, having carefully considered all relevant matters, signed an order for Lauri Love's extradition to the United States.

Mr Love has been charged with various computer hacking offences which included targeting US military and federal government agencies.
