'I Used To Take A Knife To College'
Adam used to carry a knife when he went to college. He told Nick why he did it - and why he saw the error of his ways. #DropTheKnife
A man from Shepherd's Bush who used to take a knife to college every day told Nick Ferrari how he managed to turn his life around.
Adam used to carry kitchen knives around west London and was eventually expelled after threatening someone with his knife in front of a teacher.
He realised the error of his ways and now owns his own plumbing company.
Speaking as part of Drop The Knife, Save A Life, Nick's campaign to get knives off the streets, he told Nick why so many youngsters carry blades.
