More Than 300 Knives Handed In
The mum of a teenager who was stabbed to death in Southampton six years ago is welcoming the results of a knife amnesty held in the city.
Hampshire Police tell us 303 knives and other weapons were left in special bins outside police stations throughout March - they included machetes and samurai swords.
18-year-old Lewis Singleton died after being knifed five times in Woolston in March 2007.
His mum Jen told Heart she hopes the amnesty makes a difference: "Even if it takes one knife off the streets and out of the wrong hands I think it's done its job."
The knife amnesty came after six stabbings in the city over the past two years.
Chief Inspector Kelly Whiting said: "We are hoping people who have handed in knives no longer want to be involved in that level of violence.
"If you know someone who carries a knife, call us and we will make sure it is removed from the streets."
