The true scale of the knife epidemic is much worse than Government statistics show, a Sunday Telegraph investigation has found.
Police figures released under the Freedom of Information Act reveal that forces in England and Wales are on course to record a total of 38,000 serious knife crimes this year – more than 100 a day.
The true level of gun crime is far higher than the Government admits in official statistics, it can be revealed.
Data provided to The Sunday Telegraph by nearly every police force in England and Wales, under freedom of information laws, show that the number of firearms incidents dealt with by officers annually is 60 per cent higher than figures stated by the Home Office.
