My name is Byron Highton, and I dedicate my life to stopping knife crime in the UK.
My younger brother Jon-Jo was killed in 2014, my brother was stabbed over 50 times in the last year of his life and the effects of all this has left me with PTSD.
I now use this pain to educate others on the aftermath of knife crime, working alongside Manchester Police, Lancashire Police, CPS, Fire Services, and many more.
I have delivered my talk to over 15,000 people in the last year alone.Byron Highton
