The mother of a 17 year old who was stabbed to death in Essex is calling on Suffolk's Police and Crime Commissioner to let her extend her knife amnesty project into places like Ipswich - where there have been three stabbings recently.
"We know we can help," Caroline Shearer, who founded the charity 'Only Cowards Carry Weapons', told Heart.
"We can provide the workshops that are needed in their schools.
The charity's Knife Amnesty project sees bins placed across Essex - where people can anonymously hand in weapons.
In the last six months - they've counted more than 2800 knives handed in across six bins.
