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 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...
