So many knife attacks!

Is it not against the law to carry a knife? Why does a person carry a knife unless they’re looking to use it?

I'm confused. Do you mean they were attacked in the bar and then suffered knife wounds? Or did they receive the wounds during the attack?

Bertie, surely by now you should know it's JT language. The staff like using 'after' in this manner. For example, 'Woman hit and killed by bus' becomes: 'Woman dies after being hit by bus', etc.
