Bereaved sister's plea for tougher knife crime sentences

A woman whose brother was stabbed to death is calling for tougher sentences for people who carry knives.

Thomas Kirwan was killed outside a nightclub in Wolverhampton in July 2012. He was 23.

His sister Martine Johnson said sentences for possession of a knife needed to be made longer to act as a meaningful deterrent to offenders.

Those responsible for Mr Kirwan's killing have not been identified.
