London Mayor denies 'Knife Angel' for Trafalgar Square

A mother whose son was stabbed to death, has criticised a decision not to display a Midlands-made monument to knife crime victims in London.

The sculpture was created at the British Ironwork Centre in Shropshire. It's made with a hundred thousand blades that were handed in to police. Its creators always hoped it could be displayed on the empty fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square, but those in charge said no. Chris Halpin reports.
