Knife Angel' sculpture standing 27ft tall and made from 100,000 confiscated and handed-in blades will go on display in Christmas warning against stabbings.


A sculpture of an angel made out of more than 100,000 handed-in knives will travel to Liverpool. The sculpture was created two years ago by the British Ironwork Centre in Shropshire to illustrate the impact of knife crime. An emergency room nurse working in Royal Liverpool Hospital campaigned for the 27ft Knife Angel sculpture to spend Christmas in Liverpool city centre.

Nurse Rob Jackson campaigned for the statue to visit the city as a monument to the devastating impact of knife violence. Mr Jackson tours schools around Merseyside talking to young adults about the impact of knives and his work in the emergency room with victims. More than 80 of the angel's knife blade wings are engraved with messages from families affected by knife crime.
