Detective Constable Lisa Roberts, said: “We’re pleased with the custodial sentence handed to Salmon yesterday. We will not tolerate knife crime in our area and I hope that this sentence sends a clear message that we can and do take action against those responsible.

“In this case victim suffered superficial injuries, but the outcome could have been very different.
