One woman told Ms Dick the issue is affecting children far younger than the teenagers and young men normally associated with carrying knives.

The woman said: “You are talking about teenagers carrying knives, but on the housing estate it’s six-year-olds that are carrying knives, because they think they won’t be stopped.

The commissioner agreed the anti-knife message needs to reach much younger children, saying: “I am sure we – not necessarily the police, because we’re not the best people often to give these messages, but possibly the police – we need to start at an early age.”

Josh Osbourne, a mentor at the youth charity Carney’s Community, said: “The feeling that I’m getting from a lot of the young people that I work with is a feeling of fear.

“They can’t even cross the road because they’re at odds or in a dispute with somebody else from literally the same postcode but across the road.”

When Ms Dick asked him which age groups are affected, Mr Osbourne said: “From the age of as young as 10 or 11, from what I’ve witnessed, up until the age of mid-20s.”
