Craig Maddocks's family backs knife campaign

The family of a man who was stabbed to death in a Wrexham pub are backing an amnesty on knives.

Craig Maddocks, 34, suffered 52 knife wounds in a flick-knife attack in a toilet cubicle in June 2013.

His mother and sister are now supporting a campaign which aims to prevent more stabbings.

Knife banks will be set up in towns and cities in several counties with the blades being melted to create a statue in memory of knife crime victims.

Matthew Richards reports.
