Knife crime rises by 8% in London


The number of victims of knife crime in London has increased by more than 8% over a three-month period, the Metropolitan Police has said.

More than 3,600 people were attacked from February to April, the figures showed.

Prime Minister David Cameron has defended Scotland Yard's record in reducing crime.

But some campaigners believe the true scale of knife crime in the capital has not been reported.
