Hundreds of dangerous knives including machetes and samurai swords have been handed into police during a knife amnesty in Southampton. The month-long campaign has been supported by a mother who knows all too well the heartache caused by knife crime.
Hannah Costigan talked to Jen Singleton, victim's mother, and Chief Inspector Kelly Whiting of Hampshire Police.
Hampshire Police have revealed that the public handed in 303 knives in a month-long knife amnesty in Southampton. The initiative follows several incidents over the past two years including six stabbings.
