Theresa May and Sajid Javid both regularly find themselves at the centre of criticism for the dramatic increase in knife attacks in the UK, this is particularly true for the nation's capital. It is the young who are falling victim and for the year ending June 2018 crimes utilising knives or sharp objects rose to approximately 40000, this resulted in the deaths of 103 people under the age of 24 - almost double the number of victims from 2012. In the first 3 months of 2019 there have already been over 20 murders by knives, with many victims under the age of 20, including a completely innocent 17 year old girl in Romford and two 17 year old boys in Manchester.
