Sergeant Matthew Daley, of Nottinghamshire Police’s knife crime team, said: “Knives have no place being carried in public and anyone who does so is likely to find themselves in custody and going before the court.

“Nottinghamshire Police continues to work closely with partners and communities to educate people about the potential consequences of carrying knives.

“We all need to make it clear that carrying a knife should never be seen as acceptable.”
