Over 3,400 knives and bladed items have been recovered from amnesty bins across Suffolk, including one at the police station in Lowestoft.

Police also made nine arrests as part of Operation Sceptre and a national week of action against knife crime earlier this month.  

As well as the arrests, officers made 53 visits to properties that were known to police to have links to County Lines and weapon offences.

Meanwhile, the high volume of knives and bladed items in the amnesty bins was said to be mainly due to Covid19 and that bins were not emptied for 12 months.
