Knife Crime and Murder Rate Up

New crime stats via the ONS:

  • a continued rise in the number of offences involving knives or sharp instruments, with police recording 16% more offences this year compared with last year
  • the number of homicides recorded by the police showed a fourth consecutive rise, increasing by 12% compared with last year; this follows a long-term decline
  • these offences tend to be concentrated in London and other metropolitan areas
