THIS ornate knife was found in Church Litten earlier today (Tuesday).

The motorcycle shaped silver find, found by Isle of Wight Police, comes on the first day of the national week of action against knife crime.

The week is part of Operation Sceptre, a national campaign to reduce knife crime which the Island's police are actively supporting.

Alongside this, Operation Varney is working to reduce antisocial behaviour around the bus station and in the Church Litten area.
