A community activist from Birmingham has said the authorities need to join up with the local community to encourage a knife amnesty following a number of stabbings in the city.
Desmond Jaddoo wants to see the authorities working with local communities to help the plan work.
His plea comes after Joshua Ribera, an 18-year-old who was a grime artist known as Depzman, was stabbed on Friday night in Selly Oak.
