The UK knife-wave continues unabated. Police chief says knife crime spate is “national emergency.” The latest slaughter comes less than a week after 20-year-old Ché Morrison was stabbed to death outside Ilford train station in east London.
A total of 97 stabbings and a staggering 269 knife related incidents have been reported in Birmingham since January. While London continues to constantly hit headlines with its knife crime epidemic, the spotlight has recently shifting to the midlands, after the region began to give the Capital a run for its money. Last year was London’s most bloodthirsty, when more than 100 fatal stabbings hit headlines, triggering calls on Mayor Sadiq Khan to step in and take the tragic issue.

Jodie Chesney, 17, was brutally stabbed to death in a park in Romford last night
This is the first image of a 17-year-old girl stabbed to death in play park in east London last night in front of her boyfriend.
When emergency services arrived, Jodie Chesney still had the blade lodged in her back as horrified neighbours rushed to save her life.
Police were called to the playground near St Neot’s Road in Harold Hill at 9.25pm last night and paramedics battled to save her life before she passed away an hour later
Mother-of-three Teresa Farenden, 49, and her friend Kelly Smith, 36, said they witnessed two men stab the teenage girl in front of her boyfriend before fleeing.
Mrs Farenden – whose house faces the park – ran over to help, still in her flip flops, after her son heard from his bedroom somebody screaming in the park for help.
The young girl lay dying just metres away from children’s swings, slides and climbing frames.

The mother said: ‘The knife blade was still in her, but I didn’t see it because it was dark.
‘I didn’t realise at the time, but then all I kept thinking once the police told me was ‘have I put the knife in further by giving her compressions?’
She added: ‘It was horrific, it was just the blood. There must’ve been two pints of blood. There was so much of it.
Paramedics battled for an hour to save the teenager but she died at the scene an hour later. A forensic officer inspects evidence at the park this morning‘The girl was moaning, but she was mostly silent. We checked her pulse and we could hear her breathing.’
Mrs Farenden was in the kitchen when her son, who was playing X-Box, heard screaming and said ‘mum, somebody is shouting ‘help’ from the park.’
