British government plans summit on rising knife crime

An entry posted on the Met Police Twitter accounts for Redbridge, Havering and Barking & Dagenham said: "The investigation team into this tragedy are appealing for calm at this time, they are working tirelessly into finding the offender (s) who have committed this crime".

Writing in the Daily Telegraph ahead of the summit, Mr Javid said he would be open to suggestions for improving the official response to what he described as "a disease, spreading through our communities, infecting our young people, taking and blighting lives".

Mrs May introduced reforms in 2014 to ensure stop and search was used in a more targeted way, following criticism that the tactics unfairly focused on black and minority ethnic individuals.

"We have a home secretary now [Sajid Javid] who I do think gets it".

"But what also matters is that as a government we look at the issues that underpin, that underline this use of knives".

Meanwhile, the Metropolitan Police said a man had been arrested in Leicester in connection with the murder of Jodie.

In Birmingham three teenagers - two aged 16 and one 18 - died in the space of 12 days last month.

Deputy Assistant Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, Graham McNulty, delivers a statement outside of New Scotland Yard relating to knife crime, in London.

Two-thirds of police forces in England and Wales recently responded to a Freedom of Information request from Channel 4's Dispatches which showed that, in those force areas, the number of teenagers recorded as having killed with a knife had risen from 26 in 2016 to 46 past year.

"We have to listen to them when they talk about resources", he said after meeting with senior police officers.

Ms Thornton said tackling knife crime should also involve "local authorities, health, education, parents and families".

At the same time, police have suffered big cuts in staffing and funding under austerity measures imposed by Prime Minister Theresa May's government, particularly during her tenure as interior minister in the years before she took the top job.

Mr Allen said: "We see too many weak gateways or disclaimers, from online retailers specifically, where the customer self-declares they are 18 without having to submit any proof - this is a wholly inadequate solution and provides an easy route for children to obtain knives against very limited checks".

Meetings will take place "as soon as possible" and were being treated as "a priority" by the PM, said her spokesman.

Police attribute the rise of fatal stabbings to various factors from gang rivalries and cuts in youth services to provocations on social media.

It is true that the causes of the increase in violent knife use are complicated and...

Evidence suggests the way to stop young people being stabbed does not lie exclusively with the criminal justice system.
