  11. General election 2017: Politicians’ promises for keeping us safe

    In a specialist care home in south London Patrick Boyce leans over his teenage son's bed and wipes his mouth.

    "He can't move, he can't feed himself, he's blind, there's no speech," he explains.

    Jamel, 17, was stabbed in the heart outside a supermarket seven months ago. Paramedics brought him back from the dead, but his quality of life is now extremely low.

    He had never been in trouble with police and never carried a knife.

    He is another victim of London's knife crime, something his dad describes as an "epidemic".

    So how are London's politicians promising to help Scotland Yard tackle knife crime, and more broadly, help to keep us safe?

    I've been taking a look at parties's pledges.
