Police react to nightclub stabbing sentence

This was a really brutal attack and the man was extremely fortunate that his injuries weren’t fatal.

Knife crime like this is completely unacceptable and this case proves that if you become involved in an offence where someone gets hurt you will face a lengthy jail sentence.

Knives have no place on our streets and we are working extremely hard to continue to drive down knife related crimes which have seen year on year reductions over the past five years.

– Detective Constable Keith Clarkson
