Knife Crime Is Bad Say Bands

We've had fake funerals, government issue parental guidance, a chocolate baby, shock tactics, marching and in your face policing. It's about time someone actually listened to Lily Allen and put on the benefit gig.

Yes, the Knife Crime Awareness Tour will be coming to a town near you in the next year. Kicking off in South Wales (who knew they had a Windsor, too?) and featuring 250 as yet unnamed music acts of all genres the tour will hit 40 UK towns with its message (plus chocolate babies and some gory posters, for maximum effect?) and plough the profits into community based projects, with the involvement of the Damilola Taylor Trust.

Meanwhile, Boris met families of knife crime victims at a seminar yesterday to help with his head scratching as he drafts a strategy on tackling youth violence.
