Ebay removes listings for self-defence pens that turn into knives

41

Self-defence pens containing knife attachments are being sold on Ebay.

The items, which are available for less than £10, are described as being for the outdoors.

The pens can be adapted by changing the head, with a description saying they could be used for tactics, self-defence, survival, broken windows and writing.

Ebay confirmed several of the items had been removed from sale after being flagged.

It added the items were banned under its firearms, weapons, and knives policy.

But anti-knife crime campaigner Amy Morgan, whose son Tyler was stabbed to death, said the website should be doing more to stop the sale of the items.

She said: Its disgusting. It needs stopping across the board, why do people need them.
