Injuries inflicted by gun and knife crime are costing the NHS more than £3 million a year, a study has revealed.
Stabbings accounted for almost three-quarters of penetrative injuries with an average of £7,196 per victim.

The study looked at injuries leading to immediate admissions for three or more days, or death within 93 days.
