The Home Office is urging teachers to run anti-knife crime lessons

The Home Office is urging teachers to run anti-knife crime lessons before the end of term, to try to prevent attacks during the Summer holidays.

The material was sent to schools last week, along with a book explaining slang terms to staff.

According to the Met Police, there were 1,296 stabbings in London from January until the end of April this year.

Dominique Airey, from Khulisa, a charity which works with young adults and children in schools, prisons and the community spoke to London Live's Alicia Edwards, about the initiative.
