MP renews calls to tackle local knife crime after recent fatal stabbing in Leamington

“Once more I am shocked and saddened by this tragic loss of life on our streets. My thoughts are with the loved ones of the victim. I’ve been liaising with the police on this matter and would like to thank them for their professionalism in dealing with the incident.

“Unfortunately, this is the latest in a series of murders – the second in five months and third in just over a year. Knife crime is abhorrent and must be tackled. Twice I’ve raised this in Parliament, on both occasions calling for real action against local knife crime.

“I’ve written to the Police and Crime Commissioner to ask why we are seeing such criminality and what is being done, as well as continuing my lobbying for higher Police budgets from the Government. If they don’t act, I fear this won’t be the last. Enough is enough.”
