Tougher punishments on knife crime are desperately needed. Increase the maximum prison sentence for carrying from 4 years to 10 and stabbing someone being increased from GBH to attempted murder (minimum 15 years).

What's needed is a faster justice system seems to be a lot of commit a serious crime and then get released on bail. Whilst I appreciate the police require time to question the victim about the incident. Surely the individual who assaulted the Police officer should have been the courts today receiving the maximum punishment available if found guilty.
