Suffolk: Your Help Needed After Knife Amnesty Success

A year-long knife amnesty in Suffolk is called a success by police, now they need your help...


More than six thousand knives have been left in special bins around Suffolk as part of the Bin a Blade amnesty.

Over the past 10 months the mobile bins visited nine police stations (Leiston, Haverhill, Woodbridge, Stowmarket, Newmarket, Sudbury, Halesworth, Beccles and Felixstowe) as well as Kessingland Library and Mid Suffolk District Council’s offices in Needham Market. Chief Constable Simon Ash was very pleased with the reaction from these communities to the amnesty.

They'll most likely be melted down, and then a decision has to be made about what to do with all the metal - that's where they need your help.

Chief of Suffolk Police, Simon Ash says he's pleased with the success of the campiagn, and now they'll try and work out what to do next...
