Ofsted say schools need more support to tackle knife crime

An Ofsted official from the capital has said some headteachers are afraid to address knife crime for fears parents will think their schools aren't safe.

The comments came as the Watchdog released a report which argued London's schools were not being given the support they need to deal with rising levels of crime, and that they couldn't be responsible in the absence of properly funded local services.

Mike Sheridan the Ofsted Director for London has more on the findings of the report.
