Visit the knife angel

If you are in Chelmsford please stop by and look at the knife angel. You can visit this thought-provoking sculpture at Central Park and join those who are already stopping to think and reflect on issues raised by the installation – the dangers of carrying a knife, youth violence and gang culture.

Jane Gardner, Deputy Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex, represented Roger Hirst at its installation last week.

She gives her thoughts on its emotive message in this video.
