Prime Minister Theresa May has promised to tackle the issues that have led to so many young people carrying knives.

Mrs May has been accused of presiding over reductions in police numbers and cuts to youth services which have contributed to a rise in knife crime.

She was speaking following a weekend in which two promising teenagers were stabbed to death.

17-year-old Jodie Chesney was killed in a park in east London on Friday night, and the following day, Yousef Ghaleb Makki, also 17, was knifed in Hale Barns in Greater Manchester.

Sky’s Mark Austin was joined by Jennifer Blake, a former gang member, who says drugs and a lack of opportunities are driving youths to pick up a knife.
