London knife crime rises to four-year high

Source: BBC

Knife crime in the city has risen to a four-year high following a relatively steady increase since June 2014.

In June 2012 there were 1,719 recorded stabbings of people aged under 25 in the capital compared with 1,749 in August 2016, the report found.

It said gang activity accounted for less than 5% of London knife crimes.

Steve O'Connell, one of the report's authors who leads the Police and Crime Committee (PCC), said: "This is significant, because not many people realise that if you only look at gang violence you won't make much difference to what is happening with knife crime."

5. Gun Crime is up, too

there must be something behind it. austerity, economic stagnation, xenophobia.
