The number of fatal stabbings in England and Wales last year was the highest ever recorded, the Office for National Statistics says.

There were 285 killings by a knife or sharp instrument in the 12 months ending March 2018, ONS analysis shows.

The number is the highest since records began in 1946.

The ONS says a recent increase in murder and manslaughter has been most pronounced among male victims and younger age groups.

Probably should ban knives or something.
