Knives found in park weapons sweep

Two knives were found in bushes during a weapons sweep in Burgess Park over the bank holiday weekend.

Met officers were joined by residents and community workers on Saturday, August 25 as they searched for hidden caches of weapons.

The park is used by gang members and people who carry knives as a place to hide their weapons – decreasing their chances of being caught and arrested for carrying knives.

They uncovered two kitchen knives hidden in the undergrowth during the search.

The find came just a day after local police officers held at meet and greet at the park, where officers gave out crime prevention advice.
