£18m to be spent on teaching the dangers of knife crime

Children as young as 10 should be taught in school about the dangers of knife crime, a report from ex-EastEnders star Brooke Kinsella says.

Her 16-year-old brother Ben was stabbed to death in north London in 2008.

Ms Kinsella, 27, appointed a government adviser on the issue last year, called for a scheme to deal with the "fear and fashion" factor of knives.

Andy Tighe reports.
