The Knife Angel comes to Corby

Over the past few weeks, the county has had the proud honour of hosting the iconic #KnifeAngel statue.

The 27ft monument has attracted attention from all members of the community, first in Northampton and now in Corby, where it will remain in the town centre until Sunday (May 29).

More importantly, the Knife Angel has provided the opportunity for the Force, and its partners, to talk about the dangers of knife crime and help break the myths around carrying knives.

Sadly, we have seen the harm and devastation caused to families, friends, and our local communities through the tragic loss of life relating to knife crime, including Corby teenager Rayon Pennycook.

In this video, Chief Inspector Nathan Murray of Northamptonshire Police explains why knife crime is a matter of priority for the Force, and why it is vital that we all keep the conversation around knife crime going.
