PRIME Minister Theresa May held a Knife Crime summit in Number 10 today, just days after 17.4m Brits were stabbed in the back.
The Prime Minister warned “we cannot simply arrest ourselves” out of the problem of crime as the Government announced new measures that could hold teachers, nurses and police officers to account.
Opening a summit in Downing Street on Monday, Theresa May said tackling knife violence is a “priority” for ministers as well as families, young people and communities across the country.
More than 100 experts will meet this week after the Government unveiled new plans which could see frontline workers in schools, hospitals and police stations accountable for failing to “spot warning signs” of violent crime among young people.
