Zombie Knives - up to 4 years in prison

Caught selling, making or importing a 'zombie knife'? You can now be sent to jail of up to 4 years.

The number of so called ‘zombie knives’ has increased over recent years and their use has resulted in a number of deaths in the UK.

This includes London teenager Stefan Appleton, who was stabbed to death in June 2015. His killer has recently been jailed for life and will serve a minimum of 9 years before being considered for release.

The law has now been changed and anyone caught selling, manufacturing or importing a 'zombie knife’ can face up to 4 years in jail.
