Knife crime crackdown in Peterborough

A campaign`s being launched next week to clamp down on the use of knives as weapons in Peterborough.

Police are holding an amnesty from Monday in which residents can hand in blades anonymously without fear of prosecution.

There`ll be a bin for people to put them in at Bayard Place.

Figures show there were 328 possession of weapons offences across Cambridgeshire in the last two years which is a 37 per cent increase on 2013 and 2014,but the figure`s in line with a rise in offences across the country and remains below both the national and regional averages.
