Knife crime prevention trial begins in London following two more teen deaths
Court orders aimed at stopping people as young as 12 from carrying knives and being involved in serious violence are being tested in London.
Police are now able to apply to the courts for a knife crime prevention order to be imposed on a youngster they believe is carrying blades, regularly has knives or has knife-related convictions.
