Run by charity Street Doctors, UK school children are taught how to deliver first aid to stabbing victims through role play, and learn how to stem blood loss, reports The Times. The scheme operates in 16 cities across the country including London, where less than 15 per cent of the population live but one-third of all stabbings occur, according to NHS data.

Data analysed by Channel 4 has found that the number of children being treated for stab wounds has nearly doubled in five years, while the number of under-18s committing murder or manslaughter has increased by 77 per cent since 2016.

Well, well, well. If it isn't the consequences of my own actions.
