    A judge has proposed a nationwide programme to file down the points of kitchen knives as a solution to the countryís soaring knife crime epidemic.

    Last week in his valedictory address, retiring Luton Crown Court Judge Nic Madge spoke of his concern that carrying a knife had become routine in some circles and called on the Government to ban the sale of large pointed kitchen knives.

    Latest figures show stabbing deaths among teenagers and young adults have reached the highest level for eight years, and knife crime overall rose 22 per cent in 2017.

    In the past two months, he said, there have been 77 knife-related incidents in Bedfordshire, including three killings.
    Obviously the judge is not aware that knives can be resharpened and the point restored.
