A stabbing victim who has a caravan in Ingoldmells is calling for action to be taken to deter people from carrying weapons after a rise in knife crime in the county
Carl Moore, a former security guard who has a caravan in the resort, said he was appalled to see a variety “knives and BB guns that can shoot metal pellets” on sale at Eastgate Market.
He told the Standard: “There should be a total ban of the sale of weapons in public places like markets and boot sales - especially where there are families.”
