Samurai Sword Handed in During Knife Amnesty
6:01am 13th December 2012
Days after a man was seriously hurt in an alleged stabbing in Newquay police have told Pirate FM dozens of knives have been handed in.
Officers have had around sixty blades during the four month amnesty, which is still ongoing.
They include a Samurai sword.
Inspector Dave Meredith said:"It is a worry but it is also a good thing that it's been given in. So it is a concern that out there in circulation there are a lot of potentially deadly bladed weapons. But on the other side of the fence it's really good people are taking notice of this amnesty.
"It doesn't have to be a sword or anything like that to critically injure somebody or even kill them. It can be something one or two inches long. You have to ask yourself if you really need it and I would appeal to people to bring these weapons in if they're not needed at home."
He says that could prevent "a moment of madness" that could kill someone.6:01am 13th December 2012
