It comes after last weekend, two people were stabbed within 24 hours. A teenager was attacked in Brighton Hill on Saturday, June 20, and an adult was stabbed in Souht Ham on Sunday, June 21.

The father of the Brighton Hill stabbing spoke to the Gazette about his concern in a rise in youth violence.

He said there are too many "kids wanting to be gangsters".

He said: "They know that no one is going to grass them up and that the police aren't going to do anything. Normally all of this stuff gets brushed underneath the carpet."
