Knife Angel creator hopes to drive home a message

The artist behind the Knife Angel in Hull says families of knife victims helped create it.

The creator of the Knife Angel sculpture, which is currently in place in Hull's Queen Gardens, says he hopes it raises awareness.

"All the time on the news, all they were talking about was knife crime and people dying through knife crime. I thought it would be good to create something massive to create awareness and make people understand the dangers and damage caused by knife crime."

That's Alfie Bradley, who used 100-thousand knives to create the huge structure.

Hundreds have already visited the piece, which will be in Hull for the next few weeks.
