"It also sent shockwaves across France where the loss of two of the country's finest young minds was seen as proof of Britain's spiral into knife-obsessed lawlessness."
Just a little ultraviolence from A Clockwork Orange.

Have they been able to determine if it was a hunting knife or an assault knife used in the attack?
Seriously it is sad but they were in a country that makes it a crime to defend yourself.

I think this sounds like one of those steel jacketed cop killer knives. Maybe the Brady Campaign needs to go over there and regulate their cutlery!

When it is a criminal act to defend yourself, to have any means of self defense[a gun,knife,pepper spray, or alike], then the criminals will have run of the prison.
Hence, you have the UK as it is today.

Sickening things happen in the sick society that the UK has become. The UK that I knew during the 6 months I lived there in 1972 is probably gone forever.
