A major conference on knife crime in the region is being held in Liverpool today.

Police and experts from across the North West will gather at Goodison Park to discuss the challenges in policing knife crime and new methods of tackling it.

The N8 Policing Research Partnership works with 13 police forces across the north of England to help their effectiveness and best practice.

The group says it wants to encourage discussion and innovative research to tackling the issue.
