The charity behind the kits wants more people to know where they are located in case of an emergency when the equipment could be used to save a life

Following on from the tragic fatal stabbing of a 16-year-old in Northampton last week, this newspaper is publishing a full list of where potentially life saving bleed kits are located across Northamptonshire.

Anti-knife crime charity Off the Streets NN has been working tirelessly to eradicate knife crime in the county, save lives and educate, since it was launched in 2021 following the murder of Dylan Holliday in Wellingborough.

After the devastating death of Fred Shand in Kingsthorpe on Wednesday March 22, the charity wants to highlight where potentially life saving kits are kept, so more people are aware of where they can turn to for help if someone, if needed.

An amnesty bin and a bleed kit were installed at the One Stop in Blackthorn earlier this year.An amnesty bin and a bleed kit were installed at the One Stop in Blackthorn earlier this year.

The bleed bags are first aid kits, but are specifically designed to treat stab wounds and the bleed control cabintes work in the same way as public access defibrillators, whereby the contents can be accessed with a code provided by 999 operators. The charity says someone who is bleeding from a stab wound could die within five minutes so knowing where bleed kits are could keep the person alive until emergency services arrive.

Below is the full list of all the bleed bags, bleed control cabinets and amnesty bins in Northamptonshire.
