Knife point robberies across England and Wales have risen by 10 per cent.
However overall the number of crimes reported to police fell by four per cent to 4.1 million in the last year, with thefts the only other category to have risen.

"This has been driven by a rise in robberies of personal property and police forces will want to focus actions on tackling these offences and offering crime prevention advice."
