A poignant 27ft statue in the shape of an Angel is now in Centre Square. The statue is created from 100,000 knives that have been used in crimes or handed in during amnesty periods. Engraved on the wings are the names of the victims of knife crime.
Whilst the statue is in place educational support workshops will take place in Central Library delivered by PCSO’s from Cleveland Police and National Knife Crime Campaigner Theresa Cave from The Chris Cave Foundation.
