Anti-knife campaigner takes on Supermarket Giant Tesco.


The teenager behind Suffolk's year-long knife amnesty has successfully stopped a promotion at her local telcos.


18 year old Holly Watson from Sudbury started the Bin-A-Blade campaign last year with Suffolk police after her brother was stabbed and killed.

Tesco told Heart:

"Following concerns raised by customers in the Sudbury area, we have decided to discontinue this promotion in the Sudbury store.

 

"We would like to stress that we take a responsible approach towards the sale of knives and operate a strict Think 25 policy. This means that if a customer looks under 25, they must show ID to prove they are over 18 years old or they will not be allowed to buy any age-restricted product, such as knives."
