Enormous Angel made of more than 100,000 knives arrives at Liverpool Cathedral
A 27-foot-high sculpture, made of more than 100,000 knives, has been unveiled outside Liverpool Cathedral.
Created by artists Alfie Bradley, at the The British Ironwork Centre, the monument is a memorial to those whose lives have been affected by knife crime.
The Knife Angel took over a year to build and is made up of thousands of knives confiscated from 43 police forces across the country.
It will be outside Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral over Christmas until January 31, 2019.
One of the people who has helped get the Knife Angel to Merseyside is Rob Jackson, a nurse at the Royal who has spent years educating young people in schools about the dangers of knives.
