Mr Khan, unveiling the plan in Poplar, East London, said: “Young people, rather than having constructive things to do, join gangs and think it’s OK to pick up knives.”

The Mayor, speaking after a fresh spate of London knifings, urged locals to assist police.

He said: “A successful investigation leads to a criminal who thinks it’s OK to carry knives being taken off our streets.”

Asked about the spate of violent attacks across the capital this weekend, Khan said: “My message to Londoners, particular in Enfield, is to help the police carry out their investigations.


“I’ve met too many victims of violent crime, too many bereaved families, it’s really important that we help the police when they carry out investigations

Money for this round of funding comes in part from the sale of three water cannon bought by the previous Mayor of London Boris Johnson.
The crowd control machines, bought and refurbished for more than £320,000, have been sold as scrap metal for just £11,025.
Khan said: “It beggars belief that the previous Mayor spent so much money on these water cannons without first receiving permission.”
