100,000 weapons turned into Knife Angel sculpture

A 26-foot high (8m) sculpture made out of knives and intended as a tribute to victims of knife crime is nearing completion.

The 100,000 weapons forming the Knife Angel have either been confiscated or surrendered to police.

It's been made at the British Ironworks Centre at Oswestry, Shropshire.

Victims' families have had messages engraved on the wings.

It will be unveiled in 2017 and it's hoped it could go on the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square, London.
