Anti-knife crime billboards to appear in Nottingham

Stories like this just annoy me. I really want knife crime and other crime in Nottingham to be reduced. But let’s face it, these billboards will achieve absolutely nothing.

“PICTURES of youngsters will appear on billboards across the city as part of a £3m national drive to cut knife crime.

Nottingham is one of dozens of cities taking part, along with London, Manchester and Birmingham. The largely-blank posters will appear in knife-crime hotspots from today.

Young people can back the Government campaign and submit their image by visiting the “It Doesn’t Have to Happen” page on the Bebo website. Home Secretary Jacqui Smith said: “I want young people to stand with us and send a clear message that weapons won’t be tolerated on our streets.”

The anti-knife crime campaign has already won the support of the England football team.Visit http://www.bebo.com/itdoesnthavetohappen.”
