A total of 200 knives have been handed into Warrington Police by members of the public following a week-long campaign tackling knife crime.
Knife surrender bins were set up at various locations around the town, inviting members of the public to hand in knives, with no questions asked.
There were also knife sweeps carried out by officers in local parks and woodlands searching for hidden weapons.
