The sculpture, by artist Alfie Bradley, was created at the British Ironwork Centre near Oswestry as part of a campaign against knife crime.

Its temporary move to Merseyside has given the Knife Angel national recognition, with several other cities contacting the Ironwork Centre about the possibility of hosting it.

Chairman, Clive Knowles said the angel would be moving to Hull.

"Hull Police are visiting Liverpool on Sunday to make arrangements for the sculpture to go straight from Liverpool to Hull’s cathedral."

He said Hull, the former city of culture, will keep the monument for 28 days.

Mr Knowles said it would be brilliant if the sculpture could go on a national tour.

"We are still pressing for it to go to London," he said.
