YOUNGSTERS have been warned there is no place to hide if they are carrying a knife.

Officers set up searches at Brighton railway station as part of the ongoing crackdown on those carrying weapons.

It follows previous days of action in August and September, where police made several arrests for young men carrying blades.

Police used metal detectors at the exit of the station so rail passengers could be quickly searched.

Last month a poster campaign near schools and colleges was also launched.

It aims to tell young people that they put themselves more at risk of serious harm if they carry a knife, and at risk of a criminal conviction which could impact their future prospects.

The force said: “You may have spotted our officers at Brighton train station today preventing harmful items from coming into our city.

“We will not tolerate people bringing knives into our city and will deal robustly with those who do.”
