MORE than 170 knives have been taken out of circulation in the Warrington area following a week of action tackling knife crime.

Police have thanked all those that assisted by handing in knives at collection bins at various locations around the town, with the fight against knife crime continuing all year round.

As part of their week of action on knife crime and its effects, police also sent out information and work around the subject to over 16 thousand pupils via the homework portal.
During Op Sceptre, which was part of a national week of action, local officers carried out knife sweeps in local parks and woodlands, knife surrenders, education in schools and targeting offenders.
Meanwhile, Liverpool based Perception Theatre, pioneers of ‘Branching Stories’ have been working with Cheshire Police, producing a vodeo tackling hte issues of knife crime.
The theatre group challenges perceptions by sparking conversation through the power of theatre and interactivity.
In support of Operation Sceptre, they produced a vilm called ‘CUT’ which was originally an applied theatre production, but over the next few months will be transformed into a ‘Branching Story’.
