    More than 60 stop-and-searches were carried out in Crewe over the weekend after extra powers were handed to officers in the wake of a stabbing.

    Generic of man being searched by a police officer

    In March, police were given greater powers to tackle knife crime, making it easier to search people without reasonable suspicion in places where serious violence may occur.

    Just over a week ago a man was attacked on Nantwich Road, with police questioning three teenage boys in connection with the incident.

    Cheshire Police were granted extra powers over the weekend to stop and search any person or vehicle looking for weapons, whether or not officers have any grounds of suspicion.

    They carried out 64 stop and searches and, so far, have arrested three men on suspicion of knife offences, two for possession of a knife and one for making threats.
