    One machete crime every 90 minutes on Britain's streets as police try to deal with thugs carrying out murders, rapes and burglaries.

    • Criminals are using machetes more and more to instill terror in their victims
    • Shocking data reveals police dealt with 15 attacks a day in last 2 months of 2016
    • 425 were in London, 99 in Greater Manchester and 77 in the West Midlands

    Machete attacks are taking place every 90 minutes on our streets, figures reveal.

    Criminals are increasingly picking the jungle blades as their weapons of choice to instill terror in victims and rival gang members.

    Police forces are dealing with rising numbers of machete-wielding thugs carrying out murders, rapes, robberies and burglaries.

    In February, 20-year-old Sadiq Aadam was hacked to death in Belsize Park, north London, by a gang carrying the blades. A teenager has since appeared in court charged with murdering two young men.

    Days earlier, father-of-two David Pugh suffered serious injuries after fighting off four machete-wielding robbers who broke into his home and started beating his 17-year-old son in Solihull, West Midlands.

    And in March, a man was left with life-changing injuries after a 'chilling' machete attack at a bar in Manchester.

    The victim, in his 30s, had been at the nightspot with his friends when another man walked past him and shouted abuse at a group of people in the bar.

    Police said when the victim asked him to calm down, the offender turned to his friend and asked for a machete before striking the victim's hand.

    The shocking statistics come after Home Secretary Amber Rudd launched the Government's long-awaited Serious Violence Strategy, which aims to tackle knife crime, earlier this week.

    It came amid a shooting and stabbing spree that has claimed 56 lives in London so far this year.

    Figures uncovered using freedom of information requests show that in the last two months of 2017 police dealt with 928 crimes involving machetes. This is an average of 15 a day – or one every 90 minutes.


    London saw 425 of the attacks, with 99 in Greater Manchester, 77 in the West Midlands and 29 each in Merseyside and West Yorkshire.

    It represents a dramatic rise from just three years before, when the deadly blades were used in only 100 crimes a month over the same period.

    The machete was originally intended as a tool used to cut undergrowth or sugar cane in Latin America and Africa.

    Critics say they have little legitimate use in the UK, but they are not on a list of banned blades such as butterfly or flick-knives.

    Gangsters are increasingly carrying the fearsome blades as status symbols and to spread fear with gruesome attacks.

    Machetes came to public prominence in May 2013 when British soldier Lee Rigby was butchered in broad daylight by two Islamist fanatics.

    Figures from the Office for National Statistics show that in the year to September 2017 the police recorded 37,443 offences involving a knife or sharp instrument – a 21 per cent increase on the previous year, and the highest since records began seven years ago.

    On Monday, Miss Rudd promised an Offensive Weapons Bill, which will ban online knife sales to under-18s and make it illegal to possess so-called zombie knives, with long, serrated blades with a maximum four-year jail penalty.

    Thank God for the new and diverse Britain. They should bring in more refugees and immigrants for the good of the country. If you don't agree you're racist scum.

    My cousin lives in London.

    She says every day that someone gets stabbed, usually youth and that there’s a bunch of 14-15 year olds on the streets every day mugging.

    Ironic that London today reminds me of 1800s London with Murderers, pick pockets, thieves, like in Oliver Twist.

    Let the problem fester for even longer and I'm sure that the 1800's would look "futuristic" after the savages manage to turn it into a 7th century shithole...just like they do literally everywhere else on the planet

    Britain has no choice but to diversify. America is busy blowing up the middle east leaving brown people no choice but to flee to your countries. Better to just accept it and get to know your new neighbors cause America ain't about to stop!

    This stuff could easily be solved by prosecuting criminals harshly but they'll probably end up settling for more welfare and anti-racism campaigns.

    Interesting to think that the British used to be some of the most orderly and law abiding people in the world.

    Knives and animal carcasses. Home.

    You sir, are an idiot.

    The middle east has been getting blown up pretty much forever and Africa has been poor and starving pretty much forever.

    It hasnt been just the US bombing the shit out if the mid-east.

    Why did these migrants/refugees just begin to appear recently?
