Sculpture made with 100,000 confiscated blades highlights UK knife crime

A sculpture made of 100,000 blades went on display in the English city of Liverpool, paying tribute to those whose lives have been affected by knife crime.

The 27-foot-high ‘Knife Angel’ is made up of 100,000 blades confiscated and surrendered to police forces across the country to highlight the issue of knife crime in the UK.

The Angel, designed by Alfie Bradley, took over a year to build and was created as a National monument against violence and aggression at the British Ironworks Centre.

Bradley said that the Angel was built with variety types of knives.
