Labour have promised to cut knife crime and ban the online sale and possession of dangerous knives, if they win the election.

Sir Keir Starmer said Tuesday that he will introduce Ronan’s Law, named after 16-year-old Ronan Kanda who was murdered with a ninja sword bought online in 2022.

The Labour leader met with bereaved families whose children lost their lives to knife crime, telling them “we can’t keep on meeting families and having the same version of the conversation, we’ve got the change the system.”
