Parents are sending children to school in stab-proof uniforms to guard against knife crime, it has emerged.
They are paying a firm which makes body armour to line blazers and jumpers with a stab-resistant material called Kevlar.
The precautions are aimed at protecting pupils from knife attacks as street crime spills over into schools.
A wave of stabbings involving teenagers includes the killing of footballer Kiyan Prince, who was knifed just yards from his school gates in north London.
