Man caught in Coventry city centre trying to ditch dangerous 22-inch knife

THIS DANGEROUS 22-inch knife was taken off the streets of Coventry after a man was seen trying to hide the bag containing it in a bush.

The man was refused entry to a Coventry city centre bar by door staff on Friday night after he refused to let them search his bag.

He then ditched the bag in the bushes and was arrested by police officers who were on patrol in the city.

They thanked the diligent door staff for their help in getting the dangerous weapon off the streets.
