Investigation reveals knives sold illegally to children

An undercover BBC investigation has revealed shops are breaking the law by selling knives to children.

A 16-year-old boy was filmed trying to buy a knife in shops across Kent and East Sussex.

Five out of 10 shops sold knives to him.

Two 16-year-olds said they had no choice but to carry knives with them on the streets of their Kent town as protection.
