The home secretary, David Blunkett, today announced plans to ban the sale of knives to under-18s in a bid to curb violent crime.

Mr Blunkett said the government was seriously considering the proposal, which would boost police powers to search people for weapons. Pubs and clubs could also be forced to install metal detectors or frisk customers to make sure they are not carrying a banned weapon.
