Mother backs knife crime memorial
The mother of a man who was stabbed to death in a car park has backed a campaign for a national memorial for victims of knife crime.
Trainee accountant Danny Jones, 21, from Chirk near Wrexham, died from a single stab wound from a replica sword.
A sculpture is being created from seized weapons in Oswestry, Shropshire, the town where he died in 2013.
Meanwhile, a north Wales judge said there was huge concern about the number of serious injuries caused by knives.
The British Ironworks Centre is creating the sculpture – Knife Angel – using 30,000 weapons seized from the scenes of crime around the UK.
Mr Jones died in hospital from a single stab wound from an ornamental short sword during an argument with a friend after a night out in Oswestry, Shropshire in April 2013.
His killer was jailed for 12 years for manslaughter.
