Knife Angel – Cathedral

I went to see this fabulous 26-foot high (8m) sculpture made out of knives and intended as a tribute to victims of knife crime which is being exhibited outside the Liverpool Anglican cathedral. The 100,000 weapons forming the Knife Angel have either been confiscated or surrendered to police. It was made at the British Ironworks Centre at Oswestry, Shropshire and victims’ families have had messages engraved on the wings.

Whilst there I also took the opportunity to take some photos of the majestic Lady chapel at the cathedral.
