Knife Angel closing ceremony: “The most beautiful sculpture I’ve ever seen”

Bolton residents said goodbye to a very special guest today, as a 27ft angel made of used knives left the town.

The Knife Angel – a monument to knife crime victims – spent a month on in the town centre, and has left a strong impression on local residents. 

We spoke to Emma Hutchinson, Chief Executive of Bolton Lads and Girls Club, to explore the impact that the statue has had on young people in Bolton:
