A seven-day knife amnesty has started today giving people the chance to get rid of unwanted knives at 16 locations across Nottinghamshire.

It runs until midnight on Sunday 17 March, as part of the national knife crime campaign Operation Sceptre.

It follows the success of the last amnesty in September, when 418 bladed weapons were taken off the streets of Nottinghamshire - which was 50% more in half the time of the previous amnesty in 2013.

This is your chance to make a difference in your community in the fight against knife crime.

The participating stations and partner agency locations are as follows: Beeston police station; Bridges Community Trust in the Bridgeway Centre, The Meadows; Byron House; Bulwell Police station; Carlton Fire station, Gedling Borough Council Civic Centre in Arnold; Kirkby-in-Ashfield police station; Mansfield police station; Newark police station; Oxclose Lane police station; Queen’s Medical Centre; Radford Road police station; Retford police station; St Ann's police station; West Bridgford police station/Rushcliffe Community Contact Centre; Worksop Police station.

101 is the number to call when you need to contact Nottinghamshire Police and it’s less urgent than a 999 call. Calls cost 15p, no matter how long the call lasts.
