Reading Time: < 1 minute

Hundreds of bars and pubs are to be given specialist medical equipment to treat catastrophic bleeding in response to rising knife crime, Sky News reports.

Some 320 bleed control kits are being supplied to late-night venues in London’s financial district over the coming months.

It is thought to be the biggest initiative of its kind in the country, following a pilot scheme in Birmingham earlier this year.
