Pupils to watch hard-hitting film on carrying knives
12:00pm Saturday 31st August 2013 in Harwich and Manningtree News
HUNDREDS of pupils will watch a hard-hitting film on the dangers of carrying knives.
Harwich and Dovercourt High School pupils wrote a script and created the film to discourage knife crime.
The project was realised after local PCSO Ray Aylott secured funding.
The film comes in the wake the anniversary of the stabbing of teenager James Johnson, who was left for dead in Dovercourt’s Milton Road with a blade embedded in his head.
The plot is still a closely guarded secret but the film is expected to be available online in the coming weeks.
It will be available on Youtube and on the Harwich and Dovercourt High School website.
