JJ Effect


On Monday 5th November we were visited by Byron Highton from the JJ Effect, who spoke to us about knife crime, some of the different types of knives banned in the UK, why they are so dangerous, and some of the potential consequences of carrying knives.

Although sad and gory in parts, everyone who went found the talk extremely informative and thought-provoking.
